Oscar-nominated hip-hop star Pharrell Williams named his son Rocket Ayer to honour his favourite musicians, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Herbie Hancock and Roy Ayers. The Happy hitmaker reveals he and his wife, model/designer Helen Lasichanh, wanted to give the five year old a name that would symbolise the success they hope he will have in life, while also paying tribute to Williams' pop icons.
"People still ask me about that soundtrack I did with that Pam Grier movie," says Ayers, referring to the 1973 Blaxploitation classic that stars Grier. "And I'll the same way when I'm playing to the people of Cleveland."
Roy Ayers did make the sun shine at New Orleans Jazz Fest on Thursday (May 2), if only metaphorically. Inside the Jazz Tent, Ayers and his band played a particularly entrancing set of everything-is-copacetic neo-soul to close out a sodden day at the Fair Grounds.
