Program notes

Relive this wonderful concert, with groove virtuoso Roy Ayers leading a sextet on UNESCO's International Jazz Day, during the 2021 (and first!) edition of the Bayfront Jazz Festival. This American vibraphone player, singer, and composer has become, notably through the success of his band Ubiquity in the 70s, one of music's most sampled artists in the fields of Rap and Hip-Hop.

Surrounded by a generous and energetic group of musicians, the artist interprets his most iconic works, a mix of Funk, Soul, Disco, and of course, Jazz. Live a memorable moment in the company of a legend whose innate melodic sensitivity and brilliant percussive sound will seduce you ears without fail!
