Wallace Roney Quintet: 4 Days 8 Shows @ Cafe Bohemia during Winter Jazz Fest
Wallace Roney brings his quintet to the Cafe Bohemia for four straight nights: January 11, 12, 13, and 14 - for Winter Jazz Fest.
2 sets per night, 8PM and 10PM.
Trumpeter Wallace Roney was mentored by Miles Davis, who chose Wallace to share the stage at his historic performance in Montreux in 1991.
Wallace Roney earned the admiration and respect of his colleagues and his elders since age 16. He has been an integral part of the band with Tony Williams, Ornette Coleman, Art Blakey, Elvin Jones, Philly Joe Jones, Walter Davis Jr., Herbie Hancock, Jay McShann, David Murray, McCoy Tyner, Sonny Rollins, Curtis Fuller, Carole King, Joni Mitchell, and Dizzy Gillespie to name a few. He was one of the few musicians in his generation who learned and perfected his craft directly from alliances with Jazz Masters. But his most important and meaningful relationship was with Miles Davis.
Wallace was mentored by Miles Davis after Miles heard him in 1983 at his birthday gala performance in Carnegie Hall. Their association peaked when Miles chose Wallace to share the stage at his historic performance in Montreux in 1991. After Davis died, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, Wayne Shorter, Tony Williams and Roney banded together and toured the world in tribute.
"My goal is to make the best music I can. I enjoy, listen and can play ALL types of music I filter my expression through the jazz experience."
