ROY AYERS UBIQUITY 'Mystic Voyage' 45th anniversary tour

just saw this come through with a ton of dates for 2020, but the ad is a bit vague, if doesn’t really seem to state Roy will be actually be on the tour, anybody know?

Here is the advert:

Roy Ayers Ubiquity celebrate the 45th anniversary of their seminal 1975 album 'Mystic Voyage'. Recorded at Electric Lady Studios in New York, 'Mystic Voyage' has been sampled countless times in Hip Hop over the years and was one of the foundations of the burgeoning Jazz-Funk scene which developed in the mid to late 1970's.

 

The opening song from the album "Brother Green (The Disco King)" was a huge tune in the Rare Groove clubs of the 1980's. "Evolution" was a dancefloor filler at clubs such as Dingwalls and "Life is Just a Moment (Part 2)" has been sampled by The Jungle Brothers, Outlaw Posse, Fila Brazilia and more.

 

Roy Ayers started his career in the 1960's joining the touring band of Herbie Mann. After going solo in the early 1970's he has released over 30 albums, composed the soundtrack for 'Coffy', a 1973 Blaxploitation film starring Pam Grier, toured and recorded with Fela Kuti, produced and released artists such as RAMP, Sylvia Striplin, Bobbi Humphrey, Eighties Ladies and is cited as a major influence by Pharrell Williamsand Erykah Badu.

It will be him and this is the second tour this year that he’s done . 

Ive seen him quite a few times, the last time at a church in Islington in April ... he’s getting on a bit now and has to take regular breaks sitting down. But still good.

In the 9ts he was in Bham on the ‘Good Vibes’ tour playing at Ronnie Scotts,  I’d been up town Sat morning record buying and ran into him in a shopping centre, literally Roy, a bouncer a table and a pile of flyers and some lps...  he was hiding behind the LPs making funny noises as folk passed by, it was brilliant..

I was chatting to him for 30/40 mins, loads of mates who walked past joined the table,  It was great fun to get that time with him, and of course we all rocked up to Ronnie Scott’s on the night..

of you get chance to see him live, especially around this lp anniversary then go..,

wonder who they will get to sing on ‘Take all the time you need’ ?
