Listen to "Searching" below.
The Godfather Of Neo-Soul.
Born on September 10, 1940, Roy Ayers is without question, a prophet of the musical genre, "Jazz-Fusion".
His contribution in the history of Hip Hop is beyond reproach and he is one of the world's most sampled artists.
Neo-Soulster's Eric Benét, Jill Scott and of course, Erykah Badu's (Her version of "Searching" on her LIVE! CD is bananas!) sound is so wound-up with Roy Ayers original vision, it's staggering.
To say, he was an influence to these multi-platinum artists is a vast understatement.
His hits include the 1976 blockbuster, "Everybody Loves the Sunshine", "Move to Groove" and "The Third Eye".
Ayers was a featured guest on Guru's "Jazzmatazz" LP, as well as, Masters At Work.
If you want to listen to a CD, while you sippin' on a lil somethin', kickin' it with that special someone?
Go pick this up!
