Recent Auditions - Wallace Roney album

Roney album cover
Originally uploaded by mike e.bop
Continiung on the path he marked out with his Prototype and Mystikal albums of recent vintage, Roney and his extended family (brother Antoine plays tenor sax and composes; wife Geri Allen is a star on piano), including turntablists Val Jeanty and DJ Axum adroitly mix contemporary rhythmic statements with post-bop forms on cuts like Vater Time and Fela's Shrine (for Afro-beat master Fela Kuti). It might be cliched but this is a disc that rewards multiple listens.
