John Wright, who is now quite obscure, recorded five albums during 1960-62 that emphasized the souful side of hard bop. In a trio with bassist Wendell Roberts and drummer Walter McCants on his debut session (which has been reissued on CD), Wright performs seven of his originals, 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
