Born September 10, 1940 Roy Ayers grew up in the area of Los Angeles known as "South Park" (modern day South Central) which was the center of the cities' black music scene.

Ayers initial interests in music sparked by family and the clubs of L.A.'s Central Avenue, would inspire him to become a vibraphonist, singer, and composer himself.

An omen to his eventual success came in the form of vibraphone mallets he received as a gift from Lionel Hampton when he was only five.

Beginning to make records playing in a jazz/funk style during the early 1960s Roy moved on to R&B and has since put his hands to numerous musical genres including jazz-fusion, disco, soul jazz, and hip hop

His sound is recognizable in the scores of many films, a memorable example of which is the highly acclaimed soundtrack for the 1973 Blaxploitation film "Coffy", starring Pam Grier.
