  15. Roy Ayers - West Coast Vibes

    OTOH, I went for decades thinking that Virgo Vibes was Roy Ayers' debut album. So...so much for effective debut album presentation, right? It's like somebody's actual rookie card being some obscure Donruss, something that they made without knowing how the players were going to turn out, just take everybody's picture and throw it on a card, hope that one or two pay off. I think Juan Gonzalez' RC was like that? OTOH, Curtis Amy better than Juan Gonzalez, and either West Coast Vibes or Virgo Vibes beats the hell out of Donruss, so, hey.
  16. It's a good'un. Some early Elvin in spectacular vintage Columbia sound remastered to close enough to perfection such as to make no difference.
  17. I've heard a scant few interviews with her, and my god, stories to tell. And such a gift! RIP and thanks for doing that thing that you did as well as you did for as long as you did it. We were blessed.
