Love Will Bring Us Back Together
Cat: PRO 933. Rel: 13 Dec 13
Disco/Nu-Disco
  1. Love Will Bring Us Back Together
  2. Rock Your Roll
Review: Following the well-received reissued albums Love Fantasy, Let's Do It, Fever and, more recently, Africa, Centre Of The World, Polydor are reissuing this exceptional 12" that was only ever pressed for DJ promotion in 1980. Featuring two of Ayers most outstanding cuts, it sings with timeless soul and funk. For the rare-groove aficionados it's all about "Love Will Bring Us Back Together" while those looking for more of an upbeat, unrelenting boogie-fusion it's all about "Rock Your Roll". Both are seminal.

Virgin Ubiquity: Remixed EP2

  5. Sunshine
  6. Funk In The Hole
  7. Third Time (Jeremy's Late Night Rub)
Review: "Roy Ayers - Virgin Ubiquity - Remixed" is Roy's most ambitious project yet. Uniting leading remixers from across the hip hop, drum n bass, nu-jazz and house spectrum in a set of complete reworks of newly discovered gems and soon to be classic jams. It is a perfect reflection both of Roy's prolific musicianship and his huge adaptability and influence. These EP's show how Roy's sound has inspired and moulded new sonic forms from deep house to drum n bass to R&B and acid jazz. It also joins Roy himself in a celebration of the many directions in which his sound has travelled in recent years, especially through new Ayers-sampled productions which are constantly turning fresh listeners on to Roy's early classics. The second of three double-EPs to be released this year is "Tarzan/Funk in the hole". Osunlade's mix of "Tarzan" is set to be a future deep house classic. The dub is gritty and tribal and a must for all soulful house heads, already a favourite amongst a privileged few. Aloe Blacc calls on his Latin influences for this Tijuana-tinged shuffle which complements Roy's vibes in an original and exotic re-working that takes "Liquid Love" to new heights. Platinum Pied Pipers have one foot firmly on the accelerator and one on the brake to bring you the tension found in their jazz funk epic take of "Funk In The Hole". TAOS's snare driven, blissfully laid-back mix of "Sunshine" will just cruise you through the sultry summer time. Nicolay has the virtuosity and vision to make almost anything sonically possible. His version on "Funk In The Hole" is a horn-drenched string arrangement that transcends and trips along the original. Jeremy Newall's "Late Night Rub" throws the Harlequin 4 against the Strings Of Life preserving the funk and adding undeniable danceability.

Review: Second time around for "Virgin Ubiquity", a killer collection of previously unreleased Roy Ayers recordings that first appeared in stores way back in 2003. Focusing on the period between 1976 and '81, much of the material joins the dots between jazz-funk, soul, disco and boogie. Highlights are plentiful throughout, from the weighty, horn-heavy release of the Merry Clayton voiced "What's The T" and heady "Oh What A Lonely Feeling", to the languid vibraphone solos of mellow groover "Green and Gold", jazzy bliss of "Mystic Voyage (Version)" and the stomping, disco era street funk of "I Am Your Mind". In a word: essential.

Review: This is the second part of Virgin Ubiquity: Unreleased Recordings 1976-1981 and is again packed with tracks that are far more than unreleased findings from the cutting room floor. Each one serves as another feather in the bow of the virtuoso Ayers, who combined jazz, funk, soul and disco in magical and unique ways throughout his career. In doing so he laid down a precursor to acid jazz and hip hop. These are tracks that show off his dynamic, liquid rhythm sections and mellifluous keys, as well as the vocal talents of a range of collaborators who touch on soaring and sensuous highs as well as more gravel and earthy lows. Essential.

Funk
  1. Everybody (4:01)
  2. And Then We Were One (4:47)
Review: Expansion's latest must-check seven-inch mines Roy Ayers' 1983 album "Lots Of Love", a sparkling post-disco set that combined the vibraphonist's usual jazz-funk flavours with colourful synthesizers and genuine boogie flavours. "Everybody" on the A-side is particularly potent; a lolloping synth-boogie head-nodder rich in life-affirming synthesizer squelches, rubbery jazz-funk bass, fluid Ayers vibraphone solos and background vocals that sneakily reference "Everybody Loves The Sunshine". Flipside "And Then We Were One" is if anything even more summery in feel, with mazy synth and vibraphone motifs dancing atop a killer jazz-funk groove. It's a little more up-tempo than the A-side, but arguably a little less addictive.

Review: Massive reissue incoming! BBE have answered many of our prayers with this long awaited repress of Roy's 1983 disco funk excursion "Silver Vibrations". A record that's currently fetching triple figures, this is the first time it's been repressed since it was released. Opening with the iconic whispered message of "Chicago", Roy takes us on a trip through his funkiest of quarters; the salubrious slap bass of "Lots Of Love", the Afrobeat staccato vocals and glock rocking vibrancy of "Silver Vibrations" and the dreamy cosmic jazz trip of "DC City" are just some of the highlights, all shared across the 12"s with no more than two tracks per side. Vibes that can't be slept on.

Review: The legendary Roy Ayers has a wealth of great material to his name but Virgin Ubiquity: Unreleased Recordings 1976-1981 might just be the cream of the crop. It's packed with gold that fuses soul and funk, jazz and disco into a load of killer cuts that never got their own release. There are husky vocal tracks featuring Merry Clayton on "Oh What A Lonely Feeling," "I Really Love You" and "What's the T?", sensual soul stirrers from Carla Vaughn such as "Mystic Voyage" and "Together Forever" and of course liquid synths and rhythm sections underpinning each of the tracks.

On the B-side you've got Barry White with a classic end of the night party vibe, 'Any Fool Could See'. Great brass section and damn funky guitar!

Review: When it comes to offering up seven-inch singles of tracks taken from classic or sought-after albums, Dynamite Cuts has an impressive track record. They're at it again here, this time mining Roy Ayers and Wayne Henderson's 1978 jazz-funk/disco fusion masterpiece "Step Into Our Life". On the A-side you'll find the languid, loose and groovy title track, a memorable affair in which dueling vibraphone and trumpet solos make merry atop a head-nodding, toe-tapping jazz-funk groove. Flipside "For Real" is a little more energetic and loved-up, with touchy-feely vocals, husling slap-bass and sci-fi synths to the fore.

  3. Crown Heights Affair - "You Don't Have To Say You Love Me" (DJ Vas rework)
  4. Crown Heights Affair - "Use Your Body & Soul" (DJ Vas rework)
Review: Get familiar... DJ Vas was the guiding force of French electronic act Kojak. In their time they were up there with the biggest French exports you can imagine. Now flying solo, he's still got funk oozing from every creative pore as he digs out four formative disco/funk cuts and gives them his own unique twist. Ayers undergoes major loop surgery as Vas teases and pleases us with the instantly distinctive hook of "Love Will Bring Us Back Together". BB & Q get beef in the kick department while Vas leaves their supreme synth boogie flavours almost untouched. Crown Heights Affair, meanwhile, get two Vas facelifts... "You Don't Have To Say You Love Me" is stripped back to begin with, allowing the dynamic to build with more grace and impact while "Use Your Body & Soul" is given a fine filter polish and refocus on the vocal phrases that we guarantee will instantly stun any floor.

Review: Call Me: Jazz from the Penthouse presents previously unreleased live recordings from jazz pianist Jack Wilson and his quartet. Wilson is best known for working with majors lie kAtlantic and Blue Note and here worked with a then-young Roy Ayers in Seattle in the hot summer months of 1966. The tracks take in some classic standards as well as some of the days pop hits. The grooves flow freely, the vibes are perfect accompaniment for dinner time listening sessions and the group features Von Barlow on drums and Buddy Woodson on bass. A fascinating 24 page booklet is also included for extra context.

  1. Pharoah Sanders - "You've Got To Have Freedom" (Opolopo Tweak) (7:12)
  2. Roy Ayers - "We Live In Brooklyn Baby" (Opolopo Tweak) (6:05)
Review: The latest missive on GAMM is something of a biggie. It features two superb reworks of classic cuts by Pharoah Sanders and Roy Ayers courtesy of Opolopo, a house producer whose cuts always have plenty of synth-fired funk and lashings of soul. He brilliantly transforms Sanders' "You've Got To Have Freedom" into a rubbery, Latin-tinged house number, underpinning the original jazz cut - complete with righteous vocals and killer trumpet solos - with an ace new bassline and beefed-up beats. He takes a different approach on his revision of Roy Ayers' "We Live In Brooklyn Baby", re-casting it as a rolling and chunky house number full of suspenseful string parts, twinkling pianos and Ayers' titular vocal.

Review: Adrian Younge and A Tribe Called Quest man Ali Shaheed Muhammad's recently released "Jazz Is Dead" album had the feel of a landmark set: a collection of inspired, all-star workouts that combined live, hip-hop style beats with the effervescent musicality of soundtrack jazz, soul, jazz-funk and Latin jazz. This speedy sequel flips the script, stripping back the guest list to a single guest collaborator: jazz-funk and fusion legend Roy Ayers. From start to finish, the set bristles with sweet female group vocals, mazy Vibraphone solos, ultra-warm electric piano, hybrid hip-hop/jazz-funk beats, and Ayers' effortless musical positivity. While nowhere near as eclectic as its predecessor, "Jazz Is 2" is arguably an even more coherent and enjoyable album - and that's saying something.
