What’s Wright, What’s Left – The Scotty Wright Quintet in St Petersburg
March 26, 2020 @ 7:00 pm
Jazz vocalist Scotty Wright returns to St Petersburg, and he has decided that now’s the time to sing what’s Wright.
With a warm, rich-toned voice, relaxed delivery and knowing phrasing, Scotty’s unique sound, deeply rooted in the jazz tradition, has earned fans here, and in 20 countries around the world.
With his reputation as a jazz singer, however, Scotty is also a songwriter. Drawing material from his recordings and performances, Scotty will share some of his Wrightings.
So, what’s left?
The jazz songbook, of course – that treasure trove of standard melodies that have withstood the test of time and fashion – classic compositions that have inspired re-arrangements, re-harmonizations and re-imaginings by the legends of jazz. Songs by Duke Ellington, Rodgers and Hart, Thelonious Monk, Tom Jobim and others are guaranteed the Wright treatment.
The Scotty Wright Quintet glides smoothly, swingingly, from one song, one mood, one groove to another, inviting listeners along for a very satisfying ride.
