Honey Pie Records present a reissue of Roy Ayers's West Coast Vibes, originally released in 1963. West Coast Vibes consists of Roy Ayers's debut recording session and it can be easily seen as the purest jazz statement of his long career. Recorded in 1963 and still far from his latter-day funk-fusion output, West Coast Vibes is the result of a fine straight-ahead jazz studio session featuring Ayers's vibraphone, Curtis Amy's saxophone, and Jack Wilson's piano, among others. A one-off chance to hear Ayers dealing with standards like Monk's "Well You Needn't" and Parker's "Donna Lee". This is old school west coast jazz at it's best.
