✨✧ Roy MeriwetherNubian Lady ... LP
Stinger, 1973. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the funkiest albums ever cut by pianist Roy Meriwether – and a set that definitely lives up to the righteous promise of the title! The album's completely different than Roy's soul jazz sides in the 60s for bigger labels – in that the tracks are all quite long and spacious, and reflect a style that's a lot more spiritual than Meriwether had ever expressed before! The title track is a tremendous reading of Kenny Barron's "Nubian Lady" – presented here in a 20 minute version that's underpinned by some massively heavy drums from Billy Jackson – nicely breaking underneath the bad-rolling bass of Bill Conway and the funky piano of Roy himself! Side 2 includes more typical material – like "Me & Mrs. Jones", "Day By Day", and "Here's That Rainy Day" – but Roy manages to make them all swing, and the record's got a great lively feel to it. Billy Jackson's on drums and percussion, and Billy Conway's on bass. LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some water near the bottom, which has caused a split and a bit of peeling. Top 3/4 of cover are fine.)
