Wallace Roney evokes the innovative style pioneered by Clark Terry, Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis like no other trumpeter today. A contemporary extension of the hard bop tradition, Roney’s personal sound is engaging, thoughtful, and energetic. In his early days as a sideman, Roney was a welcome addition in the bands of drum legends Art Blakey, Tony Williams and Elvin Jones. His current group is powered by another highly-respected percussionist: Lenny White of Return to Forever fame, whose intrepid drumming underscores the deft musicianship of pianist Anthony Wonsey, bassist Rashaan Carter, and saxophonist Benjamin Solomon.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
