Roy Ayers

Roy Ayers - vibraphone, composer, bandleader, recording artist

Roy Ayers was during the 1960s one of the most prominent and leading jazz vibraphone players in America. During the 1970s and 80s he came to change his focus and became one of the leading figures in R&B and jazz/funk.

His music has often been described as being years ahead of it's time.
