The Wallace Roney Quartet at the Jazz Showcase 4/24-27 Print E-mail
Written by Ronaldo Oregano   
Sunday, 20 April 2014

"The older you are, you do become a better player. The reason is that, not only on the knowledge side, you get older and your body can control things better. The more time you spend with your instrument, the better control you have over it. The more life you live, the more you can bring to your art." - Wallace Roney

An acclaimed protégé of Miles Davis, Wallace Roney faced criticism early in his career for his significant similarities to his mentor in tone and expression. His latest recordings and three Grammy Awards have served to dispel accusations of mimicry, proving that the stylistic affinity is in no way a cover for any shortcomings or lack of individuality. On tour with his quintet, Roney will perform at the Jazz Showcase in Chicago, Thursday, April 24th through Sunday, April 27th.

“Rosenwinkel’s music represents the sound of the future, just as bebop once did.”  -Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune

Kurt Rosenwinkel
A guitarist whose harmonic ideas and sinuous, legato approach make him readily identifiable, Rosenwinkel is perhaps the most beloved jazz guitarist of his generation. Here’s what guitar legend Bill Frisell said about Kurt Rosenwinkel: “There’s this kind of fluidity and architecture in the lines that he plays that I don’t think I’ve heard anybody else do. There’s a mystery in it to me. It’s not obviously derived from some other player. He’s really developed his own language with the musical information and physically the way he’s playing the instrument.”

The Kurt Rosenwinkel trio will apprear at the Jazz Showcase in Chicago on Tursday, April 17th through Sunday, April 20th with sets at 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. nightly plus an additional 4:30 p.m. show on Sunday.

Grammy-nominated jazz guitarist Pat Martino and his trio, featuring Hammond B3 organ master Pat Bianchi and drummer Carmen Intorre, will appear at the Jazz Showcase on Thursday, March 20th through Sunday, March 23rd. Martino has had a prolific career in jazz that dates back to the early 1960s. He has been recording and leading his own groups since 1967. He has recorded for all of the top labels in jazz including Vanguard, Prestige, Concord, Fantasy, Warner Brothers, Polydor, Atlantic, Mainstream, and Blue Note Records. Many of Martino’s recordings are now considered classic, and all of his vinyl recordings have been reissued on CD. He has close to 30 albums out as a leader, and there would be many more if not for a life threatening illness that struck him in the mid 1970s.
