DJ Grizz- Roy Ayers Mix

Something from the daddy of Jazz Funk today... Mr Roy Ayers. 77 years young this year and still playing on the circuit he was a 70's pioneer of the Jazz Funk sound. Firstly with his band Ubiquity then as a solo artist on the Polydor label Mr Ayer's grooves were a staple of the Soul/jazz Funk club and weekender scene throughout the 70' and 80's. Here's some of his best stuff.

We kick off with a Club monster in Running Away, a cool cut from 1982 in Turn me Loose, there's a collaboration with Crusader Wayne Henderson, an anthem with Love Will Bring Us Back Together, the sublime Searching and end on the huge Everybody Loves The Sunshine- here in a slightly alternate version.... plus many more jazz funk memories from back in the day.

Enjoy your week Mixtapers!
