About the program:

The KENTE AT HOME Series – Featuring: the Dwayne Dolphin Trio 

Musicians: 

  • Dwayne Dolphin (bass)
  • Orrin Evans (piano)
  • George Heid III (drums)

Dwayne Dolphin began playing both the drums and bass guitar at the tender age of ten. By the time Dolphin was fifteen, he was on the jazz scene working with Pittsburgh jazz greats like the great Roger Humphries.

Upon graduating from high school, Dwayne headed for the bright lights of New York City to begin his promising jazz career. Dolphin’s talent was immediately recognized by Grammy Award winning trumpeter Wynton Marsalis. While touring throughout the US with Marsalis, Dwayne appeared on The Tonight Show with this award-winning quintet. Later he joined the Hank Crawford Group. Dwayne attributes Crawford with teaching him the true meaning of the blues.

Throughout his career, Dolphin has had the opportunity to play and record with the “Who’s Who” of music, including Geri Allen, Nancy Wilson, Melba Moore, Fred Wesley, and Abbey Lincoln. When he is not out on the road, he can be heard in and around Pittsburgh wherever good jazz is played.
