Roy Ayers Real Name: Roy Edward Ayers. Profile: Once one of the most visible and winning jazz vibraphonists of the 1960s, then an R&B bandleader in the 1970s and '80s, Roy Ayers' reputation s now that of one of the prophets of acid jazz, a man decades ahead of his time.

Roy Ayers' Virgin Ubiquity, Vol. 2: Unreleased Recordings 1976-1981 is another hodgepodge of demos and outtake cuts that were left off official releases for various reasons. That said, for Ayers fans, the set is consistent. The demo version of "Sunshine" that closes the album - featuring Ayers on vocals - is rough, but a beautiful foreshadowing of the monster tune that was to come, and is most welcome here. Ultimately, Virgin Ubiquity, Vol. 2 is only going to appeal to the hardcore element in Ayers' fan base, but for those folks, it will come as a welcome addition to his catalog.
