Wayne Wallace Latin Jazz Quintet sizzles at StanfordThe famed Bay Area group played on Sunday, July 16, to a swelteringly hot and packed Dinkelspiel Auditorium, as part of Stanford’s summer Jazz Festival.The heat helped egg Wallace and his players on, as they hammered, pounded and funked their way through nine compositions in a blazing 80 minutes — no flash, no congestion, just pure groovy action.Ever since Wallace began a tenured teaching position at Indiana University’s jazz studies program in 2013, there have been fewer chances for Bay Area jazz fans to hear the Grammy Award-nominated quintet.[...] Sunday night, they picked up right where they left off, displaying how much they have to teach us about breaking musical boundaries and opening our ears to new sounds.The room pulsed as an undulating sea of these guitar-shaped Stanford Jazz fans swayed up and down, silently backing the quintet’s flawless rhythm.Snatches of “In a Sentimental Mood” — Duke Ellington’s achingly perfect ballad — sneak out of Wallace, providing familiar emotion in an unfamiliar, skewed new way.The most distinctive element of Wallace’s music — its combination of different musical traditions from across the African and Latin diasporas — was on display in the closer, one hell of a mashup of Miles Davis’ “So What” and Romberg and Hammerstein’s “Softly as in a Morning Sunrise.”
