Much has been said—indeed, much of it by this writer—of Aaron Myers’s outsize persona. Let no one doubt the singer and pianist’s surplus of personality and the charisma with which he plies it. Just know, too, that it can be deceiving. In a jazz tradition (particularly strong among singers) that stretches back to Louis Armstrong, Myers is a gregarious entertainer but also an artist of great nuance and profundity. And on Pride, he’s got something nuanced and profound to say.

This album might be alternatively titled The Meeting. We’re not talking about a stuffy boardroom affair here, or even a sit-down at one of DC’s steakhouses. This is a meeting in the sense that the Black church uses the term, the meeting of King Oliver’s “Camp Meeting Blues” or Mingus’s “Wednesday Night Prayer Meeting.” A blend of worship service, community forum, and social gathering. The presence of this tradition in Myers’s music can be no surprise to anyone who’s heard the southern-soul grit of his voice or his preacherly cadence.
