Roy MeriwetherNubian Lady (plus Roy Meriwether Live) ... LP
Nature Sounds, 1973. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $23.99 24.98
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! Roy also takes on Barron's wicked "Jungle Plum" – rolling the tune along at top speed, and really cooking things up in the process! The album's completed by a great mellow take on "Me & Mrs Jones" – but one that has Conway's bass rolling out these warm lines that still have a subtly funky undercurrent! Also features the bonus album Roy Meriwether Live – recorded the same night – with all the soul and funk that was missing from earlier albums! The setting is The Magic Carpet in Dayton, Ohio – and Roy's leading a trio that features Bill Conway on bass and Billy Jackson on drums. Side one features Roy's extended reading of the "Jesus Christ Superstar" score – done with some great funky touches on tracks like "Everything's All Right", "What's The Buzz", and "39 Lashes", all of which come off in a strong Three Sounds mode. Side two features a mellow reading of "Out Of This World", plus a harder-grooving rendition of Kenny Barron's "Jungle Plum". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition – with bonus LP!)

✨✧ Roy MeriwetherSoup & Onions – Soul Cookin By The Roy Meriwether Trio ... LP
Columbia, Late 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Heavy soul from the Roy Meriwether Trio – picking up at a place where the Ramsey Lewis trio first began, and taking things to a very soulful extension! The tunes are straightforward soul jazz, played with a heck of a lot of fire in the rhythms – thanks to bassist Isaas Sloan and drummer John Arnold – and all tracks feature plenty of cooking piano work from Roy himself! Titles include "The Ripper", "Taste Of Honey", "Soup & Onions", "Little Lousy Jane", and "Screwdriver". LP, Vinyl record album
(360 Sound mono pressing.)

✨✧ Roy Meriwether TrioSoul 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
