While Invitation to Openness was Les McCann's progressive statement of 1972, this was his populist sermon, with a title to match. With four vocals among the seven tracks, Talk to the People preaches earthily in the funky soul/jazz and R&B languages of the time, with some social comment besides. Having gone completely over to the Rhodes electric piano and Hohner clavinet, McCann became a fervent convert – indeed, he and Stevie Wonder were the funky-butt champs of the clavinet in the 1970s – and he could beat on them with the rhythmic snap of a conga drummer.
