Master guitarist, composer, writer, and educator Anson Wright spent his formative twenties in New York City. A graduate of Princeton, Anson left post-graduate studies at Columbia to pursue his creative visions far from cloistered academia. Living in the East Village and frequenting performances by Charles Mingus at the Five Spot, Anson composed and performed music for finger-style guitar as well as immersing himself in the vibrant literary and alternative education scenes. In addition to pursuing his musical career, Anson completed his novel, Jericho, drove taxi, taught guitar and creative writing, ran a trucking company, and built cabinets. Anson’s early jazz studies began in clinics with the legendary jazz guitarist Howard Roberts.
