Tony Adamo's Cold Duck Time

Tony Adamo's Cold Duck Time/new words by Tony Adamo with permission from the Eddie Harris estate.
 1) Cold Duck Time

"How does one describe Les McCann’s singing? Tony Adamo explores some of the same areas at times, particularly on the opener “Cold Duck Time.” During what is probably the first vocal version ever of the song made famous by McCann and Eddie Harris at the 1968 Montreux Jazz Festival, Adamo contributes words that change the song into “Groove On Line” while retaining the same joyful groove of the original." Scott Yanow, author of The Jazz Singers
