Don Wright's The Wright Stuff
'Echoes from Abbey Road'

The extraordinary sound of SuperSax is back!
Saxophonist Don Wright leads five saxophones in this powerhouse, 10-piece Jazz ensemble performing the music of Grammy-award-winning US band SuperSax. This new concert format showcases the music of saxophone legend Charlie Parker, captured in exciting and dynamic arrangements for five saxophones, trumpet, trombone and rhythm section.

In conceiving 'The Wright Stuff', as Saxophonist/Musical Director, Don has achieved a life-long ambition - the resurrection of an instrumental sound so exciting and engrossing... yet one that has remained hidden from the public ear for nearly 30 years!
