O’s Notes: The veteran jazz trumpeter Wallace Roney assembles a fine team with his brother Antoine on sax, Aruan Ortiz (keyboards), Rashaan Carter (b) and drummer Kush Abadey. They share the stage for what is a fine example of modern jazz, a mix of Roney’s originals with classic covers. They blend straight ahead jazz with rock, fusion, funk and R&B. We enjoyed the funky fusion on “Pacific Express”, the mellow tones on “Plaza Real” and “Evolution of the Blues”. Undoubtedly Home is one of Roney’s best!
