The Wallace Roney Quartet at the Jazz Showcase 11/19-22 PDF Print
Written by Ronaldo Oregano   
Sunday, 15 November 2015

"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

Wallace Roney Andrea Canter
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, November 19th through Sunday, November 22nd.
