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.

Fusing the creativity and style of contemporary jazz with a profound affinity for the musical traditions of Latin America and the Caribbean, their 2008 album Infinity (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.
