Roy Meriwether Trio
Opening Night
Farenheit

Roy Meriwether is a monster pianist, displaying plentiful chops and inspiration on this CD, live-recorded during opening night at Jus' Jazz in Anderson, Indiana and originally released on two 1987 vinyl albums. For his ingenuity, energy, and diverse melody-focused style, the Dayton, Ohio native merits broader exposure, as does drummer Paul Samuels, lavish contributor to dynamics of the ten reworked jazz, blues and soul standards. Bassist Kevin Harris locks in, making this an industrious trio workout.
