“Wallace’s unit is like an elite commando unit: lean, mean and packing some serious heat.” — Forest Dylan Bryant, Jazz Observer

“San Francisco native Wayne Wallace 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. With
impeccable musicianship and boundless imagination, this group takes listeners on a multicultural
musical voyage to Cuba, Africa, and Latin America.” — Forrest Dylan Bryant, Jazz Observer
