Wayne is practically a one-man ecosystem of jazz. He is a phenomenal trombonist, composer, arranger, bandleader, educator, producer, and head of his own record label. Pursuing each of these endeavors with unparalleled passion, imagination, and artistry, Wayne has become a towering figure in the Bay Area jazz scene.
Wayne’s acclaimed Latin Jazz Quintet brings together some of the area’s best players: Dave Belove on bass, Murray Low on piano, Mike Spiro on percussion, and Paul Van Wageningen on drums.
Fusing the creativity and style of contemporary jazz with a profound affinity for the musical traditions of Latin America and the Caribbean, their newly-release album Bien Bien (on Wallace’s own Patois label) features Wallace’s original music as well as unique interpretations of jazz and Latin favorites. With impeccable musicianship and boundless imagination, this group takes listeners on a multicultural musical voyage to Cuba, Africa, and Latin America.
The quintet performs at Senzala Restaurant which has arguably the best Brazilian food in the South Bay. The food is terrific, atmosphere colorful and exciting. You can’t find a better place to listen to music and feel transported to the lush and welcome arms of Brazil itself.
