No Turn Unstoned #109: A Tribute to ROY AYERS

This week I am doing a tribute to the great ROY AYERS! I went to a tribute for him by The Robert Glasper Trio and Pete Rock last weekend in Harlem, and at 69 he blew every youngin’ on the stage out of the water… So, I thought I’d do my own tribute to the man, myth, and one of the most sampled musicians ever.
