Editorial Reviews

Roy's 1971 Polydor debut finds the jazz vibes virtuoso breaking new ground with the funk-soul fusion for which he'd soon be famous. First time on CD including the rare single He Gives Us All His Love !

Respected vibist Roy Ayers takes a turn with this album towards the sound of jazz-funk.And without even knowing the mixture of funkiness and mellowness this album possessed eventually led to the creation of a whole genre called acid jazz.How this all happened is easy to explain.The year is 1971 and so much in R&B and jazz is brewing that it isn't even worth mentioning.The presense of funk in these musics really begins to take on a whole new meaning.And you can see that on Roy's own "Pretty Brown Skin",a chunky wah-wah driven "funk process" jam with some rather raw vocals from Roy."Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head" tricks you;at first your fooled into thinking your going to hear a very rote cover until the percussion slips into the mix and it turns into a funky free-for-all of the highest degree before it's over;it's my favorite version of the tune frankly and it's one of only a few versions I've heard.On "I Can't Help Myself" we're back to more fuzzed out jazzy funk;Harry Whitaker and Bill Henderson's electric pianos and Roy's vibes are speaking a musical language where the two sounds meld together into this wonderfully communal/ensamble style of playing that was heavily jestating at that particular time.Also that Roy's voice is echoplexed at the finale to add to the excitment of the song .Not to mention that "Love" and "The Fuzz" keep that seem feel going while "Hummin" brings Nat Adderly's great compositional ability to the fore. On "Can You Dig It?" well.....the intention of this music really becomes more clear as the heavy Afro Cuban styled percussion accompany some of the finest vibe solos I ever heard come from Roy in any period.Read more ›

Finally, somebody is taking the iniative to release these types of jazz classics to compact disc. Roy Ayers is one of the most innovative artist of this genre of music and his material deserves to be available to the fans for purchase. I must commend Verve records for their efforts in getting this self titled album to cd. This is one of Roy's finest early recordings. I just picked it up and I'm enjoying.

What I love about Roy Ayers--well, where is time for a superlative encyclopedia. Listen once to his Coffy theme to hear a virtuoso of the highest order.

But listen to Ubiquity--or better--all of his work, to hear a virtuoso who does not write only to spotlight his massive talent. Ayers and his bands master a lush soul jazz, with the brass tacks of Milt Jackson and the satin arrangements of Barry Whilte. Any one of Ayers albums is an all encompassing listen, part of which is complete mastery of the vibraphone

Take "Yellow Ribbon" from this album: "Yellow ribbon in your hair." is the chorus, set to the simplest of beats and melodies. A lessor talent would make the track inane, but Ayers does what most musical masters can--make the simple inevitable. Other tracks here feature lusher arrangement, perfectly balanced soul with advanced jazz harmonics. Fantastic work.
