The one and only Roy Ayers obviously needs little introduction, but his indie Uno Melodic label still holds a bit of mystique as it was formed in the early 80's as a juxtaposition with his more pop oriented releases on Polydor and Columbia. Released in 1982, Fast Money was Ayers vibraphone laced stab at the boogie-funk sound and a successful one at that. All told the Uno Melodic label put out a handful of recordings, many of them essential. Most certainly we will cover a few more releases down the line.
So anyways Black Shag and I are pulling an all-niter before we catch a very early flight to Montreal to spin some records for the Luxe party at Velvet. Montreal friends, we hope to see you tonite in a haze of sleazy funk and sleep deprivation.
