Wallace Roney is great! Check out his recordings and enjoy this article by Stanley Crouch writing in the New York Times:

THOSE who hear the trumpeter Wallace Roney at Birdland in Manhattan this week will experience the art of one of the musicians most responsible for the jazz renaissance that took off in the early 1980’s. They will also hear one of the best band leaders in the music, for Mr. Roney has found a personal way of fusing his three major influences on composition, arranging and group playing — Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Herbie Hancock, informed by the studying and the playing that he did with Ornette Coleman.
