Throwback Friday: “Everybody Loves the Sunshine” by Roy Ayers

See! I told you this week I would go back a decade. Time for some 70s spring/summer lovin’ music. Released in 1976, “Everybody Loves the Sunshine” is the title track off Roy Ayers’s album. A native of LA, it only seems natural that this jazz artist would pen a song like this. As I listen to it now, it feels like a precursor to sounds you hear in G-Funk made popular in the late 80s and 90s by folks like Snoop Dogg, Warren G, and Nate Dogg.
