JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2004 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Wallace Rooney Quartet

The Wallace Rooney Quartet was scheduled for Kilbourn on Sunday night but they had an accident leaving New York. We had already seen Rooney playing with Ornette Coleman in NYC a few years ago (we named our new cat after Ornette when we got back) and we were looking forward to seeing him again. But the Michel Bisceglia Trio filled in amply. From Belgium, they have been together for fourteen years and played beautifully. They were in the Keith Jarret vein but they rocked harder. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
