October 05, 2009
$14 at the door
After a performance at the prestigious Monterey Jazz Festival, Wayne Wallace brings his Latin Jazz Quintet to Yoshi’s to celebrate the release of his latest CD on Patois Records entitled “¡Bien, Bien!” This performance is coming on the heels of Wayne being named in the 2009 DownBeat Critics Poll Trombone category and as a nominee for the SF Weekly Music Awards 2009 in the Jazz/Blues category. The Quintet’s prior release Infinity was voted "Album of the Week" by Latin Jazz Corner; spent two weeks at #2 on Jazz Week's "World Music Top 50 Charts"; and led Nelson Rodriguez of Latin Beat Magazine to declare: "Based on this CD, Wayne Wallace has become my choice for the title of 'Musician of the Year.'" Come see why Wayne Wallace was described by the Stanford Jazz Festival as “practically a one-man ecosystem of jazz” and join the celebration of the release of an album that prompted Andy Harlow, Latin Music PD for WDNA - Miami to exclaim "Wayne has done it again. It definitely is Grammy material."
