Baltimore native trombonist Corey Wallace has gained the respect and admiration of many in his relentless pursuit of all things good music and amazing life experiences. He was selected as the 2012 Best Trombonist by the Washington City Paper for his “technical fluidity and for the heavy dose [of] introspection that sits right on the surface of his playing”. He is well versed and feels equally at home is various styles of music and is always eager to contribute with like-minded musicians. "Music is about life - communication, emotions, interactions, love and otherwise, as well as experiences; I want any and all music in which I take part to come from a real place and be able to connect with others," says Wallace. Having shared the stage with jazz musicians such as Wycliffe Gordon, Lee Konitz, Grachan Moncur III, and Warren Wolf, the legendary R&B group the Impressions, gospel music’s Kim Burrell, worldly talents Antone “Chooky” Caldwell and Marcus Johnson, as well as rock/soul group Mary C & the Stellars, R&B/soul artist Dessy Di Lauro, among many others, he continues to show his vast knowledge of music and love for reaching people regardless of the style. As an educator, he has taught at Penn State University, the Baltimore School for the Arts, the Harlem School for the Arts, and in the New York Public School System. He is currently based out of Brooklyn, NY, where he freelances all over the United States as a musician, composer, and arranger. He leads the Corey Wallace DUBtet, featuring some of the best musicians from NYC and the world, and also plays regularly in a number of bands in NYCs top venues for live music.
