Back in April we reported that a documentary film on the life, music, and philosophy of funk, soul, and jazz composer Roy Ayers was in the works from directing team Haylow Overby and Ariel Nuñez.

The production team has been steadily traveling and interviewing a variety of contributors to the film, and recently released the following trailer:

In addition to a documentary, the project is said to be, "art, talented artists who use their gifts to express themselves through canvas, murals, and other mediums capturing the spirit of Roy Ayers. It is also performance, bringing together Roy Ayers himself with talent musicians to perform live at venues across the country. The Roy Ayers Project is about sharing the essence and legacy of one of the greatest musicians ever to live."
