WALLACE RONEY QUINTET at the Blue Note (July 9, 8 and 10:30 p.m.). Mr. Roney, a virtuoso trumpeter, was a leading voice among the Young Lions of the 1980s and ’90s, and the only trumpet player to earn an apprenticeship with Miles Davis. Fleet-fingered with a bright and keen tone, he’s not seen particularly often onstage in New York these days, so this one-night engagement provides a rare opportunity. The intergenerational band here features the 18-year-old Emilio Modeste on tenor saxophone, Oscar Williams on piano, Curtis Lundy on bass and Ronnie Burrage on drums.
