For well over 3 decades, soulful Jazz great Roy Ayers has graced us w/ his musical genius. Not only am I impressed w/ his ability to play vibes very well, or the multiple albums he's produced, but to also look at some of his perspectives in writing, as the example used for 'I Am Your Mind', which shows a portion of his creativity from the point of your own mind speaking to you. For this post, the tune in question is a remix of Mr. Ayers' tribute to slain Civil Rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. entitled 'Holiday'. Remix production credit for this song is by Hip-Hop/Soul/House producer DJ Spinna. This is Rapster Records shot at the recent rise of Jazz and NuJazz producing labels doing remixes of classic Jazz tunes by the legends of the sound. However, this 'NuClassic' was not released domestically. This is an album worth taking the time to order and have shipped to you to add to your collection. But for now, sit back, relax, and enjoy this mellow tune w/ the notorious DJ Spinna intergalactic signature added.
