Philadelphia has produced some of the most dynamic musical innovators in jazz history. Rising star Shakoor Sanders can be added to the pantheon of distinctive African drumming.
The inventive and open-minded approach of Wallace Roney's previous HighNote releases is maintained on Home. Roney is taking the eclecticism of his influences and merging them into a coherent whole, be it bebop, postbop, Trane, Herbie Hancock and Weather Report funk and fusion, hip-hop and, of course, Miles Davis, his guiding light. But Wallace Roney is mainstream only in the sense that he builds on what went before. And most importantly he does that with the essence of what jazz should be: A vehicle for self-expression, a conduit of the musical, mental and emotional self.
