Smoke Notes

Responsible for some of the finest instrumental R&B ever recorded, the Meters early material treads similar ground to the Bar-Kays or Booker T & the MGs, yet is steeped in New Orleans history and displays the brilliant touch of producer/arranger Allen Toussaint (who discovered the group on one of his talent scouting missions through the seedy nightlife of the mysterious Creole city). 'Look-Ka Py Py' is the groups second LP, following their less accomplished yet no less fascinating self titled debut and from the opening strains of the title cut the quartets strengths become obvious, the syncopated and sinewy grooves show a band whose communication has almost become telepathic, like a jazz group in full power, with interplay that borders on the supernatural, and a strength that would stay with the band right through their career. Songs like Rigor Mortis, Yeah, Youre Right and This Is My Last Affair bounce along with a joy thats never cheesy or indulgent, just purely fun. Toussaints raw yet rich recording of the group lends a credibility and authenticity, making the sessions reminesent of the groups live sound, capturing the qualities of a band at the peak of their powers. Beautifully remastered by Rhino records, 'Look-Ka Py Py' like any Meters recording from this period, is simply put, some of the most essential music of its type bar none, music so influential that it has affected musicians in the realms of rock, funk and hip-hop, and will no doubt make the same impression on any newcomer. Recommended.
