JACOB H. CARRUTHERS FOR INNER CITY STUDIES
John Wright has been playing piano and setting the standard for trios in Chicago for nearly 50 years. His style is both the majestic and blues-drenched with a big sound that fills a room with sound and fans! There is little doubt that his earlier recordings on Prestige (check out South Side Soul) influenced many Chicago pianists to cross-overmerging more blues into standards and jazzand shape the Chicago school piano trio sound.
