A team of musicians, DJs, rappers, and producers have come together in an effort to better educate the world on the work and influence of jazz composer/vibraphonist Roy Ayers. And they’re doing so through an upcoming documentary called the Roy Ayers Project. The latest trailer, which is the third released thus far, features the likes of DJ Premier, Ski Beatz, and many others speaking on the living legend’s career. Amongst a slew of complimentary testimonials, the best is perhaps when we hear that Ayers might be the most influential artist for the whole genre of neo soul. Expect to see more information on the documentary soon.
You can watch the trailer below.
