If you remember the previous clips (with Bobbito Garcia and ?uestlove, respectively) that we posted, then you already know the Roy Ayers Project is an ongoing documentation of that souljazz giant’s influence on the world of music, supported by Okayplayer and our channel partners at Revivalist. Like any self-respecting giant, Roy Ayers got a posse and rather than focusing on any one interview, this third trailer gives a nice cross-section of the fans, collaborators and post-Roy music-makers who were tapped for the project (Rich Medina and DJ Premier, just to name two). As RAP point person DJ Haylow says:
The Roy Ayers Project is proud to release our third trailer, and we are also excited to make a big announcement for the near future. As we begin to shape the Roy Ayers documentary from start to finish, we are going to begin to release more footage, more often, so we can give the viewers more of an insight to who Roy Ayers is, as well as his influence. Starting today, we will release a clip from our exclusive footage every 2 weeks so we can share our footage with true fans of Roy Ayers, as well as gaining new fans who just may be learning about his legacy. We will also begin a online fundraising effort to support our independent hustle, which gives you (no matter where you are) the opportunity to support us and be a part of the Roy Ayers Project.
