Roy Ayers announces new album

Roy Ayers announces new studio album with Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad

Roy Ayers announces new s...d Muhammad

Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad met Roy Ayers in February 2018 while the famous vibraphonist was playing as part of the Jazz Is Dead concert series. From this meeting was born the album Roy Ayers: Jazz Is Dead 002, entirely produced by the Californian maestro Ali Shaheed Muhammad.

Composed of eight original tracks and recorded with six hands at producer Younge’s Linear Labs studio in Los Angeles, this summit meeting of Great Black Music is a clever mix between the quintessential jazz fusion/neo-soul of Ayers’ discography and the retro-modern soul approach of the two producers.

With the voices of Loren Oden and Joi Gilliam, Younge & Shaheed Muhammad take turns playing bass, electric piano, clavinet or mellotron, while the vibraphonist makes the instrument of which he is the undisputed master speak with elegance and warmth.

funny thing is....these past few months,I've been listening to alot of Roy Ayers music.His melodic,mesmerizing music is exactly what I need right now in these crazy times music I'm happy that there is some new music coming out.The new single "Synchronize Vibration" is excellent.Many will notice its similarity to Roy's 1976 masterpiece "Everybody Loves The Sunshine".

Thanks for posting. I look forward to it. I'm a Roy Ayers fan too. I know he had suffered

an illness last year that was posted here. Glad to see he's back to doing what he does best.

He's an amazing artist. I'm glad to see Ali Shaheed Muhammad involved with the project.

Don't laugh at my funk
This funk is a serious joint
