    Jazz Giants: Roy Ayers

    When: Friday, 2/24/2017 7:30 PM Export event

    Where: Schultz Cultural Arts Hall

    Vibraphonist/vocalist Roy Ayers is among the best-known, most loved and respected jazz/R&B artists on the music scene today.

    Now in his fourth decade in the music business, Ayers, known as the Godfather of Neo-soul, continues to bridge the gap between generations of music lovers. In the 1960s he was an award-winning jazz vibraphonist, and transformed into a popular R&B band leader in the 70s/80s.

    Today, the dynamic music man is an iconic figure still in great demand, collaborating with music industry heavyweights including Mary J. Blige, Erykah Badu, 50 Cent, A Tribe Called Quest, Tupac and Ice Cube.

    Ayers recently recorded with hip hop artist Talib Kweli (produced by Kanye West) and jazz/R&B singer Wil Downing.

    Many of Ayers' songs including Everybody Loves the Sunshine, Searchin and Running Away have been frequently sampled and remixed by DJs worldwide.
