RoyMeriwether Trio —
Soul Knight ... LP Capitol, Late 60s. Used ...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the best of Roy's funky piano albums from the late 60s – and a good example of how strongly Capitol could craft these sorts of pop jazz soul albums (especially when you compare the record to some of Roy's on Columbia). The best tracks on the record are the straight soul ones – like the version of "Cow Cow Blues", redone as the funky "Cow Cow Boogaloo"; or the nice jazzy stepping version of the gospel classic "Walk With Me". Other nice ones include covers of "Think", "Mission Impossible", and Eddie Harris' "Mean Greens" – plus Meriwether's own "Satisfy My Soul". LP, Vinyl record album
