HEY! Where's my invite to the 'Stoned Soul Picnic'!? Oh right, I was otherwise engaged in 1968 but sure am glad that a young Roy Ayers documented this happening event of psychedelic jazz funk vibraphone action with the legendary Herbie Mann.
"Ayer’s 1968 Masterwork now issued on classic black vinyl. In the late 1960s, vibraphonist Roy Ayers was among the top young talents in jazz, thriving during a remarkable era for the genre. While Ayers would later become a jazz-funk pioneer and delve heavily into R&B fusions, his third album Stoned Soul Picnic is a masterful showcase of soul-jazz grooves. Produced by Herbie Mann, Stoned Soul Picnic features a memorable Laura Nyro-penned title track, along with an exceptional lineup of musicians, including Gary Bartz, Hubert Laws, Ron Carter, Herbie Hancock, and Grady Tate. Originally released in 1968, this early Roy Ayers classic is now receiving an official reissue on limited-edition splatter colored vinyl via Nature Sounds."
