CD Release Party for “Putting Down Roots”

West Coast Blues Hall of Fame Blues Saxophone Player of the Year 2014

Well-established as a top Blues sax sideman for more than 30 years, Nancy Wright has released a new blues/roots CD in early 2015, adding vocal and songwriting dimensions to her artistry. “Putting Down Roots” consists of twelve blues/roots originals (six instrumentals and six vocals) spanning blues, R&B, New Orleans, funk, and gospel styles.

“One of the hottest blues sax players in the business, she is known for powerful, soulful, fascinating playing. Her sax solos are a highlight of any show she’s in.”

– John Orr, San Jose Mercury News

“. . . Big, fat tone, warm vibrato, nice building of tension and release . . . some kickass blues playing and loads of fun to listen to . . .”

– Bruce Iglauer, President of Alligator Records

“. . . Wright (has a) naturally bluesy voice . . . a semi-shouting mezzo soprano that’s reminiscent in its approach to Ruth Brown and Dinah Washington . . . (she doesn’t) just sing the blues, (she) feel(s) them as well.”

– George “Blues Fin Tuna” Fish, Blues Blast Magazine
