R.I.P.

Also contributed to classic Stevie Wonder albums.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

A visionary, to be sure.

I somehow never knew, 'til just now, that in his previous incarnation as a bassist he was a founding member of both The Jazz Couriers (with Ronnie Scott, Tubby Hayes and Bill Eyden) and Alexis Korner's Blues Incorporated!

I always loved the first Tonto-album...it seemed like a blueprint for what bands like Yellow Magic Orchestra took to new extremes nearly a decade later.
I did read up on Cecil after I discovered his role on Minnie Riperton's Perfect Angel and his work with Stevie Wonder which was certainly groundbreaking, especially Talking Book. Consequently, I am now trawling through his blues period and checking out Blues Incorporated...

A millipede of music. RIP.

He also played on Stills’ Manassas.
This is not the year to think about what we don’t have.
It is the year we should be grateful for what we do have.

I didn't know that Les!

Check:
Malcolm Cecil - Expanded Series III Moog Synthesizer programming

Wow!

Obviously that's the lad's contribution here:



It have looked at those credits hundreds of times and didn't pick that up

Good lad Les

Good lad!
