Dwayne Burno Homegoing Service @ St. Peter's Church Sat, February 1, 2014 at 3pm

It is with deep sadness that I announce the passing of the world renown bassist and friend to the world, Dwayne Burno, who died December 28, 2013 in New York at age 43, following a long battle with kidney disease. The death was announced by his wife, Wendy Watel-Burno. He is survived by Wendy and his 7-year old son, Quinn, and brothers Derrick Burno, MD, Jeffrey Bundy and Charlton Burno.

Born June 10, 1970 in Philadelphia, where his mother was a pianist and choral director, Burno began playing double bass at 16 and entered the Berklee College of Music two years later. His first professional gigs included work with saxophonists Donald Harrison and Jesse Davis, and by 1990, upon moving to New York, Burno was already being called on by major names in jazz, beginning with singer Betty Carter, whose band he joined. The list of those with whom Burno played throughout his career also included Freddie Hubbard, Herbie Hancock, Wynton Marsalis, Joe Chambers, Betty Carter, Benny Golson, Clifford Jordan, George Colligan, Joe Henderson, Wallace Roney, Jeremy Pelt, Roy Haynes, Bobby Hutcherson, Harold Mabern, Dr. John, Mulgrew Miller, Steve Turre, Roy Hargrove, Cedar Walton, Abbey Lincoln, David Murray, Digable Planets, Brian Lynch, David Weiss, Chucho Valdes, Greg Osby, Nicholas Payton, Eric Reed, Luis Perdomo, Orrin Evans, Don Braden and others. Burno appeared on more than 50 recordings and also led his own Dwayne Burno Quintet, which performed at New York's Smalls and other venues.

You may donate directly to the family through the Jazz Foundation of America, who has been helping the Burno's since the illness first took its toll.
