Antoine Roney – Harlem Afternoon Jazz Series

Antoine Roney Philadelphia-born tenor saxophonist Antoine Roney grew up surrounded by music. After a short period learning the clarinet, he 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, Roney pursued studies in both alto and tenor sax. He graduated from the Duke Ellington School of the Arts and attended college at the Hartt School of Music, where he studied with alto saxophonist, Jackie McLean. Antoine has released five albums as a leader, in addition to working with Donald Byrd, Jackie McLean, Clifford Jordan, Ted Curson, John Patton, Rashied Ali, Arthur Taylor, Jesse Davis, Ravi Coltrane, Michael Carvin, Geri Allen, Chick Corea and Elvin Jones, to name a few. Antoine also participated in the Miles Davis tribute project Bitches Brew Revisited, with drummer Cindy Blackman.
