Wallace Roney
DESCRIPTION
Band:
Wallace Roney, trumpet
Lenny White, drums
Rashaan Carter, bass
Derron Johnson, piano


Wallace Roney, himself, is historic. He is the only trumpeter that
was personally taught by Miles Davis. Miles was his teacher and
mentor for close to 10 years. In the historic performance at Montreux Jazz Festival, Wallace performed with Miles - a performance which is listed as one of the top 20 most important events in music history.

Mr. Roney is heralded as an "improviser who loves complicated almost mathematical lines and who performs with catlike grace" by the New York Times , trumpeter, composer and bandleader Wallace Roney is one of the most exciting and innovative musicians on the creative music scene. His consummate artistry and eagerness to explore and transcend musical boundaries has led him to collaborate with such diverse musicians as Art Blakey, Miles Davis, Carole King, Ornette Coleman, Sonny Rollins, Prince, Herbie Hancock and Joni Mitchell, among numerous others.

Praised by Time Magazine for his "amber tone and patient and
considered phrasing," Wallace Roney has recorded over a dozen albums as a leader. Each recording illuminates the dynamic trumpeter's keen compositional chops and versatility as a bandleader and composer. It is rare to find a musician who can superbly execute and breathe new life into such juxtaposed musicians as Miles Davis, Kenny Dorham, Al Green, and Slick Rick.

Equally at home with acoustic and electronic jazz, R&B and funk,
Wallace Roney was born in the City of Brotherly Love, following a long list of celebrated trumpeters including Lee Morgan and Johnny Coles. By the age of four, Roney began studying at the renowned Settlement School of Music and a decade later he made his first recording date. After relocating to Washington DC, Roney attended the prestigious Duke Ellington High School for the Performing Arts. In 1979 and 1980 the young trumpeter had the distinction of winning at Down Beat's Award for "Best Young Jazz Musician of the Year." He continued his studies at Berklee College of Music and Howard University while also earning credits in Art Blakey's University as a Jazz Messenger. He went on to work with Miles Davis alum and drum extraordinaire Tony Williams' Quintet.

In the mid-80s, Wallace Roney performed a tribute for Miles Davis'
birthday at Carnegie Hall marking a pivotal moment in the young
trumpeter's life. Roney holds the distinction of being the only
trumpet player Davis ever personally mentored. In 1991, Roney
performed with Miles in the now legendary Montreux concert conducted by Quincy Jones in which he returned to the landmark music he once recorded with Gil Evans. Following Miles' passing Roney toured with the original members of Miles Davis' famed quintet; Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, Wayne Shorter and Tony Williams. In 2006, Hancock, the Davis family, and VH-1 invited Roney to celebrate Miles' induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame during an internationally televised event.

Saturday, September 5, 2015 9p Doors open 7:30p
Seabird Jazz Lounge - Long Beach, Ca

As straight ahead as Jazz can get!!!!! Azar Lawrence is considered to be a direct descendant of John Coltrane via his years with McCoy Tyner. An American treasure Azar's recorded with Tyner, Miles Davis, Woody Shaw among others. He wrote for Earth, Wind & Fire and performs on Marvin Gaye's Grammy winning album Hear My Dear.

AZAR LAWRENCE

One of the most powerful and distinctive of all post' Coltrane tenorists, Azar Lawrence has been a sometimes quiet force in music for over three decades. Born in 1952 in Los Angeles by the age of 21 he had worked with Ike & Tina Turner, War, and Charles Wright's Watts 103rd Street Band ('Express Yourself'). At an early age, Azar Lawrence left his mark on Jazz. Hired by drummer Elvin Jones when he was just 19, the prodigious young saxophonist would be tapped soon after by McCoy Tyner to fill the large shoes of collaborator John Coltrane.

Lawrence's distinctive sound embodies a deep spirituality, which can be heard on Tyner's "Walk Spirit, Talk Spirit", and his own numerous recordings on Prestige.

His current Oeuvre doesn't miss a beat, with frequent New York and Los Angeles shows that sparkle with virtuosity, and vivid ideas and textures. To the discerning listener, Lawrence's depth can only be attributed to one who has 'been there'. And 'there' he most definitely was.

His latest production Azar Lawrence - The Seeker was recorded live at the Jazz Standard, New York, NY. The Seeker made it to Grammy nomination consideration; and next up!; Azar Lawrence's soon to be released new CD; Elementals promises to be another 'red hot' presentation submitted by the ever burning! saxist guru'..

Appearing on more than 40 recordings as a sideman, he has accompanied everyone from Sonny Fortune and Charles Lloyd to Freddie Hubbard and Ray Mantilla, and has six recordings as a leader.

Harold Land, Bobby Hutchinson and a long list of renowned musicians. He released The Littleton Brothers | Collage with Bobby Watson.

MARVIN "SMITTY" SMITH

45th Annual Silverado Country Fair & Folk Festival
DESCRIPTION
Sat morning ?Unparade? at 9 am followed by a two-day Country Fair of Wild West action, Live Musicians, Arts & Crafts, Food & Beverages, 1800?s Activities, Steampunk Magic Show, Silly Eatin? & Dressin? Contests! Extended Saturday Night Music Fest 5-10 pm.

Where the heck is the Silverado Country Fair? Well, just miles from the inner city life of Orange County, lies the little ?ole town of Silverado Canyon! This country town of less than 1,500 residents was once inhabited by the Acjachemen (Juaneno) Native American Tribe, then later home of the 1800?s Bluelight silver boom and early settler folk.

What the heck is the Silverado Country Fair all about? Canyon residents realize that remote, rustic living means weathering disasters. In February 1969, rainstorms flooded Silverado and Modjeska canyons and homes were washed away. Six people were killed when the Silverado Fire Station was hit by mudslides. The Silverado Country Fair was held in 1970 as a way to help bring the community together after the devastating rains and fundraise for families. ?Canyonites? living in harms way of the coming 2015 ?El Nino? are planning to use this year?s fair proceeds to have resources ready to help cuz? it?s a ?neighbors helping neighbors? kind of community!

The Inter-Canyon League?s 45th Annual Silverado Country Fair and Folk Festival October 10th-11th is gonna? be the best family event of the season and will explore the wonders of the area?s Old West rustic culture, great live music, tasty food, handmade arts and crafts, 1800?s period activities, children?s petting zoo, Steampunk magic show, family games and silly ?ole timey? contests, all nestled under the Oak trees below Orange County?s famous Saddleback Mountain.

The 45th event kicks off at 9:00 am Saturday morning with the 45th ?Unparade? lead by the notorious wagon driven Silverado Outlaws!

California?s Premiere Old West Convention Mounts Up
M7 Con begins planning for the 3rd annual convention set for October 2015 in Los Angeles, CA

Los Angeles, CA.,--- Start marking your calendars Western and Magnificent Seven fans! That?s right the
3rd annual M7 Con is riding into Los Angeles, California October 23 and 24, 2015 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. All staff members have mounted their horses and headed out on their journey to plan the best M7 Con fans will experience. While heading into our third year, we are keeping the event a two day Con in order to expand out to other Western panelists and possible actors. We want our audience, new members and veteran members, to get their money?s worth and from the looks of the initial plans that will definitely be the case. If we do get more actors and/or panelists the Con may be extended.
M7 Con, in the past two years, has brought to its fans amazing panelists that have shared their in-depth knowledge of things from the Old West and the television series. M7 Con has also brought lifetime chances to fans to meet actors from the M7 series; such as Rick Worthy, Anthony Starke, Dale Midkiff, Andrew Kavovit and guest star Daren Flam. During our inaugural year we had series executive producer and writer, Pen Densham on site as well. Each year, we as a staff, strive to bring the audience bigger and better experiences.
While our actors and panelists line-up has just begun initial planning, M7 Con has extended an open invitation to new and past actors and panelists. We will be expanding into different areas of the Western genre and the history surrounding the Old West this year. We want to give the audience an experience of a lifetime and for them to want to return year after year. M7 Con was started by fans for fans and we hold that to a very high regard.
We are still in the early planning stages but along with the actors? main panel, this year will also feature a variety of Old West expert guest panelists, autograph and photo ops, various vendors and special events.
We hope to have a full house on October 23 & 24, 2015 and that each guest has a magnificent time.
