- Virgin Ubiquity (Unreleased Recordings 1976 - 1981) by Roy Ayers
8/10 Jack 27th December 2017
Roy Ayers, what else can I say? His music was very much from his time, but his orchestration, arrangements, vocals, much of his production style, was from the future. The fact that his music remains relevant with modern fans now says a lot about his work. Whether it's an album of R&B duets, or a soundtrack for the next Grand Theft Auto videogame, Roy was there, is there, and always will be there so long as he chooses to be. Virgin Ubiquity is a holy grail for true Ayers (and even current acid jazz and neosoul fans), in both theory and reality.
