Les McCann is an American soul-jazz pianist and vocalist whose biggest successes came as a crossover artist into R&B and soul. In 1971, he was part of a group of soul, R&B and rock performers — including Wilson Pickett, The Staple Singers, Santana and Ike & Tina Turner — who flew to Accra, Ghana for an historic 14-hour concert before more than 100,000 Ghanaians. The March 6 concert was recorded for the documentary film Soul To Soul. In 2004 the movie was released on DVD with an accompanying soundtrack album.
