The Meters, Fiyo at the Fillmore Volume 1
2006 | Label: Fuel 2000 / The Orchard

Before they mutated into the Neville Brothers, the Meters were the hometown answer to Booker T and the MGs — a tightly-knit quartet anchored by organ (Art Neville). With hissing hi-hats and razor-sharp drumming under slashing guitar and chunky organ, the Meters trimmed the music down to its funky essentials while creating complex instrumentals (like "Cissy Strut") that were still danceable. (Later attempts at vocalizing only undercut the sound.) This recent live set, with Neville… read more »

If you have to call it funky

olfogey

...then it prolly ain't. Without Zigaboo is bad enuff. W/O Leo, fuggedaboutit. If you ain't got the original Meters, go back and pick 'em up, and get any and all records where they backed up other artists. Go on, steal from the best. Once you get the original Meters, if you ain't had enuff, go on to the stuff w/o Ziggy but with Leo. This is like the seeds and stems. Gives me a headache.

Wrong! Art Neville *and* George Porter...

Funkifized

This is the band carrying on the Meters' legacy. Brian Stoltz is far more conservative on the shredding than Leo Nocentelli these days. There is no better groove in New Orleans than the rhythm section of Stoltz, Porter, and Russell Batiste. This is one of the great bands of New Orleans, definitely worthy of the original Meters. Art Neville would never settle for anything less than the best. This incarnation of the band has been the most consistent and keepers of the best groove, bar none. Stoltz is very much missed, as he left the band a couple of years back now. BTW, Stoltz is known is "King of the Funk Guitar" in New Orleans.

FUNKY Meters

Microbe

This is the Funky Meters. Not The Meters. This is a band formed with just one of the original members of the Meters in it, George Porter Jr. I don't think Art is on this one. That being said, its a decent enough album. It doesn't have the same feel, as Brian Stoltz has a bit more rock than jazz influence unlike Leo Nocentelli. Worth checking out, the songs themselves make it a 4 star for me, even if the performances aren't the best.
