A free Roy Ayers download

Vibraphonist Roy Ayers produced some tasty funk in the 1970s, after starting out in a straight-ahead jazz vein in the ’60s (alongside Hampton Hawes and Herbie Mann).

Ayers is held in high esteem by hip-hoppers and acid-jazz freaks, as illustrated by a 2006 CD called “Virgin Ubiquity: Remixed.”

Follow this link to to cop a FREE MP3 of “Holiday,” remixed by DJ Spinna.

I like "Our Time is Coming", and equally the cover that Jamiroquai did on the white room (a UK music show from the mid nineties).

I'm not sure if you like or have heard of Jamiroquai - he clearly loves prince and stevie wonder
