Gil Goldstein , Wallace Roney


L'héritier désigné par Miles Davis - Wallace Roney -

et son Quartet avec Gil Goldstein aux claviers
When Wallace Roney's name comes up, another immediately comes to mind : that of Miles Davis. Rather than argue the point, Roney sits back and enjoys the comparison. Atter all, wasn't Miles compared to Dizzy Gillespie when he vas young? According to Roney, the important thing is to be yourself, to let your own course. In the 1980s, he played in bands led by Art Blakey and Tony Williams, and in 1987 recorded his first album at the head of his own quintet. A few months after the death of the master, Herbie Hancock picked him as trumpet player for the "Tribute to Miles Tour". A champion of classically inspired jazz, Wallace Roney expresses emotions too often dismissed by those obsessed with today's standards of virtuosity. The renowned pianist and arranger Gil Goldstein joins the quartet.
