 Notes & Reviews
 
John Carey, 'Oh So Funky'(2012, Planet Bass, NYC), consists of the music from The Meters, an American funk band based in New Orleans, Louisiana that made their records in the late 60s and 70s. The CD features Andy Narell- steelpans (Chucho Valdes, Bela Fleck, Marcus Miller, Spyro Gyra, Aretha Franklin, The Kronos String Quartet...), Anton Fig- drums (Late Show w/David Letterman, Joe Bonamassa, Booker T. & The MG's, Bob Dylan, Cyndi Lauper...), Oz Noy- guitar (Chris Botti, Gavin DeGraw, Harry Belafonte, Gov't Mule, Allen Toussaint...), Will Lee- featured vocalist (Late Show w/David Letterman, George Benson, Hiram Bullock, Brecker Brothers...) and John Carey- bass, vocals, percussion & producer. The recording is filled with super groovy tunes that adhere to the tradition of The Meters, yet utilizes the lively and tropical sounds of the steelpans in place of the organ.
