I adore Roy Ayers on so many levels but had an amazing experience with him that I’ll treasure forever.
So a couple of years back I was A&Ring an album project for “The Vision”, a project from Ben Westbeech & KON. It’s an awesome blend of house, funk, soul & disco. Ben’s lifetime hero is Roy so he was always the No1 dream guest for the album so I got amongst trying to see if I could make it happen. Roy was in London for a couple of Jazz Cafe dates & I was desperately trying to lock in availability/commercials for a possible studio session but it wasn’t looking good. Th
