In the early 1970's, jazz composer and vibraphone player Roy Ayers formed a band called Roy Ayers Ubiquity. In 1973, Ayers, with his group, wrote and produced the soundtrack to the blaxploitation classic Coffy starring Pam Grier. After the success of the heavily praised soundtrack, Ayers began to move away from his jazz-funk sound, and to more of a R&B sound. In 1976, the group released Vibrations album, which included the jazz-funk song Vibrations. The same year the they released Everybody Loves The Sunshine, which included the often-sampled R&B title track.
