WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
ABOUT THE WAYNE HENDERSON EXPERIENCE

Jazz Musician

Bill Easley, saxophonist

A lot of drummers "keep time" which is an oxymoron. You can't keep time?

Wayne plays time!

Jazz Band

John Colianni, jazz pianist

Wayne Henderson is well-known for his superior technique on drums, which he combines with a driving, infectious, rhythmic pulse. He's musically versatile, but still maintains an identifiable sound and style. A top rank player.

Jazz Club

Laurie Dapice, vocalist

Tonight I went to hear colleague, bandleader and drummer Wayne Henderson. I have heard many drummers in my day but I was fascinated by his time, style and authentic percussive technique. He was well diversified in a variety of styles.
