Roy Ayers is playing his hometown Los Angeles soon, (with Pete Rock and live band) and DJ Anthony Valdez has put together a very cool mix for the occasion..
"In advance of the performance, KRCW DJ Anthony Valadez has created a stellar mix incorporating Ayers originals and their creative offspring. Appearances include the Roots, Ultramagnetic MCs, X-Clan, and more (the transition from Ayers and Carl Clay's "Shining Symbol" into Redman's "Creepin'" is masterful). But the Ayers effect has extended to a third generation. Also on the bill will be Thundercat, the Brainfeeder-signed fusion jazz artist who clearly channels the beautiful float of Ayers' most poignant compositions."
