Editorial Reviews

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.

Five BIG Stars!! Grammy-winning jazz trumpet virtuoso Wallace Roney has produced a wonderful recording that has songs with both futuristic shadings and timeless jazz qualities, covering alot of musical ground. Highly enjoyable, this is jazz for the 21st Century that grabs the listener with hot beats, lush sonic landscapes, and wonderful musical frameworks that help set off inspired solos by all players. And of course, some of this follows trails already blazed by Wallace Roney's mentor, Miles Davis. He is supported by his wife, the legendary keyboard master Geri Allen; his brother reed star Antoine Roney, who appears on tenor, soprano, and bass clariinet; Robert Irving III also on keyboards; Rashaan Carter on bass guitar; Eric Allen on drums; and Val "Gelder" Jeanty and DJ Axum on turntables. Yes, turntables, and it works!

The 'Pieces De Resistance', the best of the best, begin with "Vater Time", one of the most intelligent uses of turntables and sonic 'add-ons' that I have heard. Showering the song with electronic splashes and sounds, over a rolling beat, bolstered by a simmering bass clarinet/bass violin unison line, Mr and Mrs Roney get off some hot solos: and this one went straight to my IPod. "Children of the Light" begins out of tempo then surges into a sparely 'comp-ed' burner pushed along nicely by drum rim-shots. "Revolution: Resolution" has Roney using echo very effectively and inventively. "Inflorescent" is pure jazz beauty and is dominated by Geri Allen's powerful solo and Wallace's own trumpet individualism, occasionally conjuring up his mentor, Miles Davis. "Fela's Shrine" has a stark percussive landscape with a killer ending. The lush ballad "Nia" and the simmering "Stand" are extended pieces with outstanding solos. Bud Powell's "Un Poco Loco" is a burning experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jazz anyway you hear it February 2, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I hadn't really listened to Wallace Roney and then I got this more on a whim than anything else. I was knocked out. It is certainly NOT a Miles Davis knock off. Roney has his own vision and sets a sonic soundscape here that is very much Roneyland. Strong melodies, great beats and excellent playing all round. The purists will say it isn't jazz but (as purists always do) they will miss the point. This is jazz for now not then. Listen to it and be blown away like I was.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music at its finest February 2, 2012
By S.L.
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Wallace Roney and company have released an extraordinary recording. This man has married the tradition of jazz with musical styles from the cutting edge of the contemporary scene. But he does it in a way that is both subtle and natural which is no easy feat. Often times I find contemporary jazz musicians attempting this sort of thing and the recording sounding quite contrived. Not so here. The music is brilliantly conceived never losing sight of the tradition, but pushing the envelope all in the same breath. It swings, it's funky, it's both tender and aggressive . . . this recording has it all. Without a doubt, this is art for the people.

5.0 out of 5 stars High Notes from Wallace September 20, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Wallace Roney is an incredible musician. He believes in pushing jazz foward. I have seen him live about 6 times. At the Village Vanguard with Charnette Moffit he took the audience on a very special ride. People were high fiving him as he walked off stage. His music and this CD won't disappoint.
