Live from Brewhouse Jazz

Born September 10, 1940 in Los Angeles.

He's put his able hands to numerous musical genres: jazz, jazz-fusion, funk, acid jazz, disco, soul jazz, R&B, house, and hip hop

You probably recognize his sound from film scores. Singer, composer, film scorer and performer on keyboards and the vibraphone.

Lionel Hampton gave him his first set of vibraphone mallets when he was just five years old.

The area where he grew up is called "South Central" now, but when he was growing up it was called "South Park" and was the heart of Southern California's Black music scene.

His high school produced some amazing musicians including Dexter Gordon.

There's a documentary in the works about his life and work called the Roy Ayers Project. The documentary is planned for release in early 2014.
