Dwayne Burno, a bassist who played with a who’s who of jazz artists and led his own groups, died yesterday, Dec. 28. He was 43. The place and cause of death have not yet been revealed. Burno was diagnosed with kidney disease in 2004 and underwent a kidney transplant in 2010. 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.
