HighNote CD 7174
Wallace Roney

This is a very smart disc. Hip, edgy, approachable. The trifecta we have come to expect from Wallace Roney. Hard to achieve by anyone, but it seems like second nature to one of the chops-heaviest trumpeters of his generation. From the opening notes, it's clear that we're in some kind of special territory. This is modern, electric-tinged, groove-oriented jazz of the absolute highest order. This music evokes a very cool vibe, at once slinky and vivacious, crepuscular and noonday bright, sultry and straightforward. With his wife Geri Allen on keyboards, producing brilliant pianism throughout, and brother Antoine on reeds, Wallace Roney and company offer another provocative album that once again points towards the future of jazz..
