He is known for the use of traditional forms and styles in combination with contemporary music. Born and raised in San Francisco, at an early age Wayne was exposed to Blues, Country and Western, and Jazz. The fertile musical environment of the San Francisco Bay Area shaped his career in a unique way. Wayne’s studies of Afro-Latin music and Jazz have provided a solid foundation for his current explorations of the intersections of diverse cultural styles, and rhythmic concepts.
Wayne has performed, recorded and studied with acknowledged masters of the Afro-Latin and Jazz idioms such as Aretha Franklin, Bobby Hutcherson, Earth Wind and Fire, Pete Escovedo, Santana, Julian Priester, Conjunto Libre, Whitney Houston, Tito Puente, Steve Turre, John Lee Hooker, Con-funk-shun, Francisco Aguabella, Manny Oquendo and Libre, Max Roach, and Orestes Vilató.
