You can sleep if you want to, but sleep on ROY AYERS, and you'll be doing yourself a huge misjustice

Trying to get NT to listen to Roy Ayers. I applaud your ultimately futile effort.



If you enjoy his classic "Searching", you might like this track my team put together:

futile's a strong word, I've got faith in NT. his work has been sampled often enough that folks in here should be familiar with some of his songs - "Everybody loves the sunshine" & "we live in Brooklyn" come to mind

theme song to Coffy is one of my favs:

If I could figure out how to upload pics from my iPhone i'd bless this thread with some pics.

I'm a huge fan of his work (and stuff he's produced like RAMP).

:lol: My man psk should be in here before the day is out.

Yeah, I love me some Roy Ayers. I'll post something different, Robert Glasper's tribute set to Ayers. Not only does it include his band, but Pete Rock on the 1s & 2s. Also check out the Roy Ayers Project site for some nice content.
