McCan
By BILL BARBOUR
Les McCann's music is hard to
categorize. In most record shops he is
listed under jazz, but his music covers
the spectrum from jazz to pop to soul to
ospel to rock. This flexibility is what
-rakes his records successful and made
his Wednesday night show at The
rcond Chance a special delight.
What puts McCann a notch above
ther performers of his ilk is the way he
:bmmunicated with the audience by
ihiviting them to sing and clap along
with his. Crowd participation fosters a
vwarm spirit between the entertainer
and audience, and McCann had the
lace captivated for his entire show.
Everyone who wasn't a fan became a
fian.
McCANN'S QUARTET took the
tage 'just after midnight, and
olled from one number to the
text. Most of the early tunes

n prove
in the set were jazz-rock, using thf
harmonic ideas of the former it
combination with the rhythmic pulse o
the latter. Unfortunately, inferio
adjustment of the sound system
distorted McCann's announcements o
song titles and the names of his back-ul
personnel, as well as some of the
musical aspects.
"At the Airport" stood out among the
tunes in the first set, a song compose(
by the quartet's guitarist. This idea
synthesis of jizz and rock with
sophisticated harmonic progressior
was a treat to the educated listener
McCann's makeover of Billy Joel':
"Just the Way You Are," was a decide(
improvement over the original.
McCann performed his ballads, suc
as "If All Men . . . " and "When I See A
Butterfly" with an intensity that fev
performers could have matched. In ar
added display of versatility, the quarte
cleverly interspersed fast and slom
numbers with an occasional bonus such as
an a capella section. The only fault with
the performance was the occasiona
distortion and the excessive length.
EVEN SO, the enthusiastic crow
brough McCann out for two encor(
numbers, the gentle "When I See A
Butterfly," and the rousing gospel tune
"Song of Love." Les pushed his rappor
with the audience to the hilt as he aske
various people to "be a witness" by
singing a solo when the spotlight hi
them. On Wednesday night, Ler
McCann owned The Second Chance
and one could't have asked for a mor
benevolent landlord.

As always, the 5th Looney Tunes Review consists of a different collection of
classic Warner Brothers cartoons than has been shown in previous Reviews.
There were many directors who worked with the famous Warner's characters,
but Chuck Jones outshone them all. Jones' films made use of Keaton & Chap-
linesque pratfall slap-stick, verbal humor as witty and sophisticated as thqt
in the great 30's and 40's live comedies, inventive design, perfect pacing and
editing, and most notable, brilliant characterizations of Warners top cartoon
stars. All combined, Jones' multi-faceted talents have carved him a place
as--arguably-the greatest cartoon director of all time (Disney included).
Tonight we present some of his- best. Starring Bugs, Daffy, Porkey, Elmer,
Sylvester, Tweety, Foghorn Leghorn, Yosemite Sam, etc. Two completely
different collections!
