New York bassist and composer Aaron Immanuel Wright's dynamic debut recording features the lyrical piano work of Darrell Grant, on saxophone Tim Wilcox, and drummer Brian Menendez. From the opening bass line of Something Mainstream, it's clear Wright has ideas that quickly move beyond the mainstream as the band explores his compositions in a truly modern vein. The lush arco tones of Wright's bass, blend with Grant's sensitive piano work on the title track, and the searching melody of Late Goodbye has an inspired European jazz aesthetic. On Eleven Daughters, Wright carries on the tradition of the great jazz bassists Mingus and Holland, who have a very natural knack of crafting superlative and nuanced ensemble recordings.
