NEW CD RELEASE:
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 utilize the lively and tropical sounds of the steelpans in place of the organ.
To be released May 2012. Stay tuned!
It's HERE! CD, John Carey, Revelry Now!
Available on iTunes.com and CDBaby.com:
“John Carey, Revelry Now, revisits songs originally performed by The Beatles, Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, Bill Withers, Carole King & more, all with a unique approach placing the Fender Jazz bass front and center."
— Planet Bass, NYC
“The three instruments (jazz bass, voice & brushed snare) melt into each other seamlessly on this particular recording. Fawn Segerson’s voice is captivating in so many ways & Frank Bellucci’s drumming is warm and inviting. I present the Fender jazz bass in a unique fashion that’s innovative, utilized primarily as a chordal instrument, yet it remains sonically appropriate and enticing. I am confident when I say that beauty indeed lies between the walls of this CD, & I am grateful to have been able to capture it for a moment in time, prolonging it via CD for all to enjoy. Thank you for listening."
— John Carey

The Meters are an American funk band based in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Meters performed and recorded their own music from the late 1960s until 1977. Their music is an earthy combination of tight melodic grooves and highly syncopated New Orleans rhythms. John will be substituting the steel pan for the organ for a unique take on this classic music.
