Product Description


Although he is a stylistic descendant of Miles Davis, Wallace Roney constantly ignores the comfortable part of the legacy. His trumpet work has none of that winsome lyricism that gave Miles his great crossover appeal. Instead, he has consistently latched on to the spiky, probing, darker side of the legacy, which clearly suits his musical temperament. No one could call these eight numbers easy listening but they have a concentrated power and moments of quite devastating boldness and originality. Roney's brother, Antoine, adds suitably cryptic support on tenor and soprano saxophone Arúan Ortiz plays inspiring keyboard throughout. FOUR STARS --Observer

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! 24 April 2012
By Victor L. Randolph - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Wallace Roney has really come into his own the past few years. I purchased "If Only For One Night" which for me has been his best work so far and when I saw this was available wanted to hear it too. I wasn't disappointed. There are some similarities in sound here but some outstanding differences too. I was especially taken by the soulful playing on Evolution of the Blues by he and his brother, and a pretty ballad (I think it was Ghost of Yesterday). And the drum solo at the end is pretty nifty. I'd highly recommend this one.
5.0 out of 5 stars In a great tradition. 9 Jun 2014

This is nothing more than your typical lay back jazz in the tradition of the great musicians we all have come to admire, so why not give it a nod or two. No, there is nothing innovative about it but you will find that, like perhaps Terence Blanchard's "God's Will" or most anything by Dave Douglas, when you play it in the wee hour of the night it will bring you a sort of calm suitable for the moment. I mean it feels just right. Don't think of Roney and say, oh he is just a Davis knock off (which to me is sort of hypocritical when a so called "knock off of any other jazz great is a well come sight) Check out what the man is doing to bring the sounds we all love into the present. You will appreciate the effort. I for one love Home and I think you will too!
