"When it comes to blaxploitation movie soundtracks, the revolutionary acid-jazz of vibraphonist Roy Ayers often gets lost in the shuffle with "Shaft" (Isaac Hayes), "Superfly" (Curtis Mayfield) and "Black Caesar" (James Brown)....but his 14 tracks are as good as it gets.
The smooth grooves are paced by percussionist William King and drummer Dennis Davis, with the brass handled by a superfecta that includes Jon Faddis and Cecil V. Bridgewater. Four cuts have vocals - "Coffy Is The Color" (Denise Bridgewater, Wayne Garfield, Ayers), "King George" (Ayers), "Coffy Baby" (Bridgewater), "Shining Symbol" (Garfield) - with the former being the standout cut. There is a sweet flow from "Coffy Is The Color," "Priscilla's Theme" and "King George," with a winning exacta in the final tunes, "Vittroni's Theme - King Is Dead" and "End Of Sugarman."
A mini-movie poster is also enclosed, with actress Pam Grier prominently featured. Released in 1973, the music retains its vibrancy through the riffs that a listener cannot resist.
