BBC Review

Roy's most popular album - a big hit with chillers the world over!

Dan Cocker 2009

Roy Ayers is often regarded as one of the greatest vibrophone players of all time. He began his career as a jazz player, releasing several albums with Arista Records before his tenure at Polydor Records, during which he progressed a new R&B style, slowly moulding the new Disco genre.

In 1970 Ayers formed the Roy Ayers Ubiquity, which recorded several albums for Polydor and featured such players as Sonny Fortune, Billy Cobham, Omar Hakim, and Alphonse Mouzon. An R&B-jazz-rock band influenced by electric Miles Davis and the Herbie Hancock Sextet at first, the Ubiquity gradually shed its jazz component in favor of R&B/funk and disco.

This is one of Roy's most popular albums - a big hit with chillers the world over!
