Roy Meriwether TrioJesus Christ Superstar (2 part medley) ... 7-inch
Notes Of Gold, 1972. Very Good- ... $4.99
Nice one! This is a 2-part 45 that includes Roy's funky version of the score to Jesus Christ Superstar. As Overton Berry and others have shown, there's some nice moments in the score that can sound nice and funky if played the right way – and believe us, Roy's playing them the right way. Much better than any of his Columbia recordings. The section of "39 Lashes" is especially great, and has a rolling piano break that's really fantastic! 7-inch, Vinyl record
(Promo. Labels have light wear and small initials.)

✨✧ Roy MeriwetherNubian Lady (plus Roy Meriwether Live) ... LP
Nature Sounds, 1973. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... 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! 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!)
