‘It brings to mind Pat Matheny and some of the solo multi-track recordings he did early on, particularly on “New Chautauqua.”‘…
‘He shows a great range of dynamic emotive power as well. “Summer Song” and “Sound Furies, Furyless,” solo acoustic arrangements, both speak to Wright’s gentler side, as well as his ability to craft a compelling melody.’.
“The result is pleasing and, above all, fresh.”
