[youtube id=”fS0ewthX6q8″] Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad’s Jazz Is Dead002 featuring Roy Ayers is out now. The project born of sessions that took place in 2018 is in the same family as Ayers’ prime output in the ’70s. The trio wrote all of the songs together that meet at the crossroads of jazz and soul. The smoky set starts the summer with renewed grooves atop a legendary foundation of fusion. The album is available digitally, in CD form and vinyl.
