Aaron Immanuel Wright

Chicago saxophonist Dudley Owens and New York bassist Aaron Immanuel Wright have joined forces, forming a powerful band that is scheduled to tour the United States and Canada in 2012 as the Owens and Wright Experience. On their new record, People Calling (Origin 82611), Owens and Wright each introduce a handful of explosive, reflective, political, and hard-swinging compositions.

Composer and bassist Aaron Immanuel Wright was raised in a musical family in Oregon. His grandmother Geneva Wright, a music educator and composer, introduced him to the piano. She also encouraged him to write down music as early as age nine. Meanwhile, his uncle, bassist and songwriter Donny Wright, encouraged him to learn how to “groove” and play with others in a band. By age fourteen he was dead set on becoming a double bassist and began playing in school bands.

“Outstanding original compositions that take in parts from bebop, modal jazz, and post-bop. The pieces are rich, textural, and full of life throughout.” -Adam Greenberg, All Music Guide
