Vibraphonist Roy Ayers made his international breakthrough as bandleader of Roy Ayers Ubiquity, a highly influential Jazz-Funk outfit counted Billy Cobham and Alphonse Mouzon among its members. But even before 'Ubiquity', Ayers had already proven his music chops playing with the likes of Herbie Mann, Gary Bartz, Hubert Laws and Herbie Hancock.

Hancock joins Ayers under his pseudonym Ronnie Clark on 1967's Virgo Vibes, a jazzy hard-bop album that seems miles away from Ayers distinctive Jazz-R&B fusion he would become famous for. However, there's a typical 'Ayers vibe' on Virgo Vibes, a relaxed and sunny record that any Jazz collector should own!
