In 1984 Roy Ayers released a largely unheralded album called, "In The Dark". This album definitely veers into questionable territory. Check out, for instance, the hilariously titled "Poo Poo La La". Or Roy getting his swagger on in "Sexy, Sexy, Sexy". He's caught up in a quiet storm crooner persona at times and it doesn't work. What is great about this album, however, is the heavy use of the Linn Drum Machine.

Here's album closer "Love Is In The Feel". Check out Stanley Clarke and Roy himself killing it on the drum programming.
