Roy Ayers - "Feeling Good" 1982

While I have started to delve into jazz vibists, like Bobby Hutcherson, it has forced me to go back through my LP collection to find other albums that never made it to CD....so here goes.
Roy Ayer's repertoire are fairly well represented in the MP3 stores, however I did find some in my collection (I believe I have all of Roy Ayers LP's he has released) that never made it. I found "Feeling Good" and maybe more as I go back.  This LP is characteristic Roy Ayers (Jazz-Funk genre) although it balances more of funk than jazz.  My first Roy Ayers LP was "Ubiquity Vibrations" and still is one of my all-around favorites, and I recommend that you get that in your collection.  My favorite tracks on this LP are the mellow  "Ooh" and the high energy "Fire Up The Funk".  More jazz vibists to follow in the near future...stay tuned...
