Wallace Roney – Intuition (Full Album)

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Intuition is the second album by American jazz trumpeter Wallace Roney which was recorded in 1988 and released on the Muse label.

“For this somewhat adventurous but still mostly straight-ahead date, trumpeter Wallace Roney explores three of his originals (including “For Duke,” which is slightly reminiscent of “Upper Manhattan Medical Group”), two by drummer and underrated composer Cindy Blackman, and one by bassist Ron Carter. Roney, Blackman, and Carter are joined by pianist Mulgrew Miller, tenor saxophonist Gary Thomas and altoist Kenny Garrett (quite an all-star group), and the music is as strong as one would expect, reflecting Roney’s long stint with the Tony Williams Quintet.” – Scott Yanow/AllMUsic.
