from Oannes blog…
Ο τρομπετίστας Wallace Roney, από τους κορυφαίους της γενιάς του, πέθανε σε ηλικία 59 ετών από κορωνοϊό σε νοσοκομείο του New Jersey. Ανάμεσα στις συνεργασίες του μπορεί κανείς να αναφέρει εκείνες με τους Jazz Messengers, τον Ornette Coleman, τον Tony Williams και φυσικά τον Miles Davis, ανάμεσα στους συνεχιστές του οποίου είχε πάντα την πιο ξεχωριστή θέση. Τον ακούμε σε δυο κομμάτια, “Little One” [Hancock] με τη σούπερ μπάντα συνεργατών του Miles [Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter, Tony Williams] από το άλμπουμ – Tribute σ’ αυτόν [η συμμετοχή του χαρακτηρίστηκε απ’ τον ίδιο ως κορυφαία στιγμή της καριέρας του] και “Elegy” [Tony Williams], από το άλμπουμ A Place In Time του 2016 [Gary Bartz – ts, Buster Williams – b, Lenny White – d, Patrick Rushen – p]
Trumpeter Wallace Roney, one of the top of his generation, died at the age of 59 from a coronavirus in a New Jersey hospital. Among his many collaborations one can mention those with Jazz Messengers, Ornette Coleman, Tony Williams and of course Miles Davis – he always had a special place among his disciples. We hear him in two tracks, “Little One” [Hancock] from the album Tribute to Miles Davis that his old colleagues [Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter, Tony Williams] recorded in 1994 [Roney’s participation was described by him as the highlight of his career] and “Elegy” [Tony Williams], from Wallace Roney’s 2016 album A Place In Time [Gary Bartz – ts, Buster Williams – b, Lenny White – d, Patrick Rushen – p]
More about these reblogs
Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. • Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!

Splendid dear Marina and Ooanes, Unfortunately I’m unable to like if comment at Ooanes blog on my phone. 💕❤️😊🌸💜🤗
I will let him know! Sending many hugs and love your way! xoxoxo
It’s just with my phone. I wonder if others hVe that problem.
I don’t know… I’ve noticed that from my phone I sometimes can’t watch videos in a post… but commenting, I haven’t had a problem. It could be because Oannes is a WordPress.org and not .com blog…
I think that is the problem because I can’t find his blog in my reader at all. xoxoxo
I had to subscribe in order to get his notifications, so maybe that’ll do the trick! 😉 xoxoxoxoxoxo
Oh I hope so! Xo 😚
Very sad. Ellis Marsalis too.
