Music Millennium

Roy Ayers was born in 1940, Los Angeles and was a musical child prodigy. He turned pro in 1961 and worked with Teddy Edwards, Chico Hamilton and Phineas newborn among others. He made his recording debut as a leader in 1963 with "west coast vibes" produced by legend Leonard Feather. He then spent six years with Herbie Mann and recorded many Atlantic LPs with him including the classic "Memphis underground".· Ayers is considered by many to be the father of both "funk jazz" and "smooth jazz". An extremely prolific artist, he has recorded over 50 albums in a career spanning more than 40 years. This is the first worldwide release of the obscure 2001 release 'perfection' (originally recorded for Ayers' own AFI label in 2000 and now out of print). Quintessential "smooth jazz" at it's best and a must for all fans of the vibraphone and the soul jazz genre. 2006.
