Roy Ayers is gracing the country girt by sea once again thanks to James Browning's Niche productions. Now if you are reading this blog you know that Roy is the man and there is no need for me to go through a detailed education on who and what this man has done, or what his significance is to the world of soul funk jazz. I for one am very familiar and fond of the ubiquitous one, as it was myself and original Funkinc partner Paul Carroll who bought Roy to Australia in 1993.

Roy Ayers always delivers a stellar performance and travels the world with nothing short of a top ranking band comprising of members touting resumes as impressive as Roy's himself.
If the Ayers experience were not enough, Niche are packing this gig to the freaking rafters with Nostalgia 77 from the UK plus our own internationally acclaimed Bamboos, who for good measure will be joined by Kylie Auldist. No wonder he doesn't have any room for me to play!
Ive loaded up a cut from Roy's seldom seen 1983 album "Lot's of Love" I do believe this slice of soul funk boogie has been repressed and you can dig it up as a nice fresh pressing. I nabbed my dusty ol' copy of Regal. I chose "Fast Money" for your listening pleasure as its a up tempo electro boogie track that fits with a lot of peoples current listening, playing, buying and dancing pleasures....
