Legendary jazzman, Wallace Roney is in perfect harmony with modern and traditional jazz sounds. With a career spanning more than 40 years, he returns to the Half Note Jazz Club in Athens to perform his unique and expressive sets of ‘jazz funk’, ‘post-bob’ and mainstream ballads.
“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.”
Wallace Roney 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 Roney 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.
