Translated from Dutch NOS radio today:

Jazz trumpet player Wallace Roney has succumbed to the coronavirus in a hospital in New Jersey. US American media report this.

Roney, who turned 59, was a great admirer of jazz icon Miles Davis, who died in 1991. He first met his idol in 1983 and then received a trumpet from Davis. The two befriended each other. Roney has performed several times with Davis and he was the only trumpet player ever personally mentored by Davis.
