Roy Ayers Ubiquity - He's Coming (1971)

Pioneering jazz-funk from the great Roy Ayers, whose vibraphone mallets turned everything they touched to gold. In the early 70s, Ayers, already an accomplished jazz musician, formed the Roy Ayers Ubiquity, with whom he applied his technical prowess to the world of funk and soul, spawning a few classic records in the process, of which He's Coming is the first. Laid-back and breezy, but plenty buoyant and vivacious, with stellar performances all around.

Track listing:
1. He's a Superstar
