Event Details

Jazzmobile’s newest program was launched two years ago with the enthusiastic support of The Interchurch Center.

This February as we celebrate Valentine’s Day listen to Wallace Roney, Jr. and the amazing sound of his trumpet.

Growing up in a household full of music, it wasn’t long before Roney Jr. took a serious interest in playing trumpet. His Idols included trumpet giants such as Kenny Dorham, Miles Davis, Freddie Hubbard, Woody Shaw, Lee Morgan etc… At age 10 after showing enormous interest in playing, and a willingness to study harmony, his father gifted him his very own horn.

Since then, Wallace has shared the bandstand with many Legends the likes of which in- clude Chick Corea, Jimmy Heath, Lenny White, Buster Williams, and the late Ornette Coleman just to name a few. Wallace Jr., a graduate of the prestigious Oberlin Conserva- tory of music, continues to play in numerous venues and performance spaces across the U.S and internationally, and remains a sought after trumpeter in the New Jersey/New York area.

Music has always been a part of Wallace Jr. family pedigree – His father being renowned trumpeter Wallace Roney Sr. as well has his mother being Universally acclaimed Pianist Geri Allen.
