MUSICIAN Born:

Antoine Roney

Philadelphia-born tenor saxophonist Antoine Roney grew up surrounded by music. After a short period learning the clarinet, young Roney took an interest in the saxophone, after his older brother - renowned saxophonist Wallace - introduced him to John Coltrane's Live at Birdland album. Inspired by what he heard, the young musician pursued studies in both alto and tenor sax, and in 1992 released his first album, "The Traveler". After a few years of touring, he issued a second album, "Whirling," in 1996. In 2006, Roney self-released two more albums, including a duet with Daniel Moreno. Always vastly active, he continues to tour and play extensively with his own trio, and has recently participated in the Miles Davis tribute project Bitches Brew Revisited, with drummer Cindy Blackman.

A queste è rimasta aggrappata per lunghi sette anni, prima ...

Will Calhoun: Celebrating Elvin Jones

Read "Celebrating Elvin Jones" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Properly paying tribute to a figure like the late Elvin Jones is about more than aping a style of drumming and referencing songs; it's about acknowledging a specific life force, how it fueled the music, and how it lives on in those who Jones influenced on the bandstand, in the studio, and through his recorded work. ...
