The Meters: Next Steps

The Meters: Next Steps

The Meters' in-the-pocket funk took the blueprint of New Orleans jazz and laid the groundwork for the grooving breakbeats of hip-hop. Their rhythms crackled with rolling guitar licks and airtight snares, as on the organ-fuelled “Little Old Money Maker” or the swinging R&B of “Trick Bag,” and the slinking funk of “Just Kissed My Baby” manages to feel both slippery and taut all at once.
