Listening to piano virtuoso Roy Meriwether play will make you wish you had kept taking lessons when you were a kid. But then you learn that he's self taught and realize all the more how talented he is as a composer and pianist.
As the title states, this album was recorded live in Las Vegas. And live it is! From the opening notes of "Preachin'", one of Roy's own compositions, you will realize that you have stumbled on to something special. With a mix of original tunes and fresh arrangements of hit standards, this soulful performance captures the essence of live jazz as played by one of the very finest to ever sit behind a keyboard.
If you have ever witness Roy's playing in person, this album will bring back many warm remembrances and whet your appetite to see him play again. He swings with such ease and never misses a beat as he shows his stuff on "Old Folks", "Aquarius", and Lionel Richie's "Lady".
Roy's unique ability to entertain is a gift - and we are blessed to be able to enjoy it right along with him on this exciting album. So go ahead and roll the dice - this one's a guaranteed jackpot!
