I’m The One (For Your Love Tonight)- Expanded Edition - Roy Ayers

I’m The One (For Your Love Tonight)- Expanded Edition
Acknowledged as one of the true pioneers in the funk/jazz world and a mainstay in contemporary music for over four decades, multi-faceted musician, producer, songwriter and performer Roy Ayers recorded a series of three albums for Columbia Records in the 80s.

Released in 1987, I'M THE ONE (For Your Love Tonight) was his final set for Columbia. Unlike its predecessors for the label, Roy produced the album himself working with his then-bassist David Metcen who co-produced and contributed five songs to the nine-track set. Other Ayers band members playing on I'M THE ONE included William Allen and Dennis Davis with long-time friend James Bedford contributing his songwriting talents on three songs.

Standout tracks include a cover of The Isley Brothers I Once Had Your Love, the soulful slow jam, Let Me Love You (featuring singer Chandra Currelley, formerly of The S.O.S.Band), the funky Crack Attack and the vibes-dominated instrumental, Blue Summer. This expanded edition includes an extended dance mix of the title track.


"Los Angeles-born vibraphone meister Roy Ayers is still going strong at the age of 71 but back during the 1970’s and early 1980’s, he was a key figure in the evolution of jazz-funk with a string of groundbreaking albums for Polydor.”
