Press reviews

"John Wright, who is now quite obscure, recorded five albums during 1960-1962 that emphasized the souful side of hard bop. In a trio with bassist Wendell Roberts and drummer Walter McCants on his debut session, Wright performs seven original compositions, all of which have something to do with Chicago. On titles such as "South Side Soul," "Salle St. After Hours" and "Amen Corner," Wright plays soulfully while swinging."

—Scott Yanow (All Music Guide)

"Worth seeking out and listening to a thousand times. Sweet phrasing and gorgeous arrangements. A lost gem, this!"

—Andy Massingham

"The personal intimacy with South Side Chicago is powerfully conveyed in this distinctly emotional and bluesy album."

—Adrian Burnes
