Okay so a recent review of a new unreleased Roy Ayers album called him the godfather of neo-soul, not to be picky but Ayers was a giant in so many diverse practices of Black American music from the 60's to the present. He successfully crossed over from straight ahead jazz, improve funk, disco, pop, 80's cheese and lately as a sideman for such massive contemporary artists like Guru and Masters at Work. All this from a vibes player? outta site. This cut is off of the first Ayers album I bought when I was a jazz headed lil teenager. Ayers band Ubiquity fly through many of the aformentioned genres, the contrast between soul disco and free jazz is compelling, plus you don't hear this cut too much. enjoy.
