The Meters is the debut studio album by the New Orleans band of the same name. It is an essential album in the funk scene and one that contains a lot of energy and soul. Organist Art Neville led the quartet which consisted of guitarist Leo Nocentelli, the rhythm section of bassist George Porter and drummer Joseph 'Zigaboo' Modeliste.

Their regional influences were a smashing together of rock n' roll, syncopated ‘second line' rhythms from Mardi Gras parades, and jazz improvisations that only could have come from the New Orleans music scene.

The Meters helped move R&B music toward the heavier direction of funk-complicated rhythms meeting economically powerful riffs that were the wave of what was to come.
