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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
