Who is Dewayne Pate?
The scope of Pate's talents have been well known for years within the musical fraternity. Pate's well-earned standing as a "musician's musician" springs from his facility across a wide spectrum of musical styles. That status is made evident by the roster of the artisits who have called Pate's services over the past twenty years for his skills as a rock-solid rhytmn man,a sophisticated colorist and a stylish improviser.
Pate has flashed his blues and jazz-funk chops for guitar-slinger Robben Ford. He's helped propel the bands of Latin all-stars Arturo Sandoval, Pete Escovedo and Ray Obleda. And he's soared through the intricate rhythms and exotic harmonies demanded by the Indian-jazz fusion of saxophonist George Brooks.
