No need to give the whole spiel here, I'll just state for the record that Mystic Voyage is a classic album whether you're slicing a loaf of jazz, funk, soul, or hip-hop. My two copies of the LP are worn and tattered but still make the trip out to gigs with me on the regular. It may be “Brother Green” on one night, a NYC b-boy landmark with the Ultimate Breaks and Beats merit badge. Or on another it could be the smooth skull snapper “Black Five” sampled relentlessly in the early '90s. Mostly I return to “Life Is Just a Moment” a two-part jam that musically and lyrically hits the spot every time. “Life is just a moment so you better enjoy it,” ya heard? All four of these cuts are now on the tiny format for the first time ever, courtesy of this limited edition 7” double pack pressed up by Dynamite Cuts. Features high-quality repro of the original album cover on heavy card stock. Might be my favorite Roy Ayers record and that's saying a whole lot. Recommended.
