NEW RELEASES : In Brief

March 28, 1993|BILL KOHLHAASE

* * 1/2 Wallace Roney, "Seth Air," Muse. Many critics have awarded the late Miles Davis' mantle to Roney, and the 32-year-old trumpeter, appears to have taken the association to heart. Though Roney's assured attack and phrasing build beautifully on Davis' lyrical legacy, the material--especially those tunes by saxophonist-brother Antoine Roney (whose playing, fittingly enough, shadows Wayne Shorter)--tends to ape, rather than extend, Davis' quintet sound of the '60s.

Albums are rated on a scale of one star (poor), two stars (fair), three stars (good, recommended), four stars (excellent).
