Richard Nappy Mayers & OthersNappy Music Man – Soul, Pop, Disco, Funk, Crossover From Trinidad 1975 to 1981 ... CD
Cree (Germany), Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $11.99
A long-overdue look at the legendary producer/performer Richard Nappy Mayers – the man behind some really wonderful Caribbean grooves at the end of the 70s! Mayers' music here is often a version of American funk, speckled with all the right sort of elements from the islands – elements of percussion that create a more complicated rhythm pattern, or vocal elements that echo more familiar Caribbean sounds, but step into much more of a funk or club sort of style – all laid down with super-tight instrumentation that rivals the best American mainstream acts of the time! The work is way more than just offhand Caribbean funk – and instead has this wicked vibe that's like some of the Caribbean groups who'd moved up north to work on the New York funk scene in the 70s – and, later on, like some of the more criss-crossing styles that were percolating out of Compass Point Studios at the start of the 80s. The set's overflowing with funky club cuts – and contains deep notes on Nappy's life and music too – and tracks include "Wajang Woman", "Soca", "Light The Light", "You're Too Easy", "Nothing Is Impossible", "Easy Breezy", and "I Like To Make Love"by Embryo – plus "Hot For Your Love", "Wanna Believe In Love", and "3 Way Situation" by Nadie La Fond – and "Ebony Girl" by Nappy, "Let Yourself Go" by Nappy Mayers, "Makin Bacchanal" by Caesar, and "Poor Man's Son" by Sound Revolution.
