We’ve just gotten confirmation that Roy Ayers will visit our radio studio tonight for an interview and maybe even short live session. It’s clear that we’re more than a little excited about this. This man’s music has been a constant inspiration for us and his drive and energy an example. We go live between 10 and 11pm.
If you want to know a little more about the man’s legacy we advise you to dig up the Waxpoetics issue 7 or use Google.
As a short soundwise preparation for this all an edit on top of this post of Roy’s collaboration with Fela Kuti which I rediscovered in my own collection while preparing the show. It blew me away completely. Forgotten how good it is. Was even a bit bummed I wouldn’t be able to share the full 17 minutes and a bit. This way I come half way. Enjoy.
