Gregg Wright's Left Hook

Gregg Wright's Left Hook - Round One - 1995 - Left Hook Records

Here's what one British journalist had to say in this mid '90's review of Gregg Wright and his debut CD "Round One": Gregg Wright plays guitar like nobody's business!!!!! This virtuoso musician and master of the Fender Stratocaster, strings his guitar in normal right-handed fashion, but plays left handed, upside down, awesomely! His backing band play with a style and precision not often heard, while Gregg takes you on a whirlwind trip of guitar expertise. Don't turn your back on him - you'll be stunned! This fantastic American guitarist strangles, manipulates and transforms the guitar from a musical instrument, into a lethal weapon that can kill from two hundred feet! Gregg is not only the consummate player's player, but he has a great voice, as well. You will certainly wake up today! One of America's most sought after guitarist / session men, this multi-award winner has recorded and toured around the world with the likes of Mick Fleetwood, Michael Jackson, Spencer Davis and the Gap Band, just to name a few, and is also a talented record producer, bandleader and musical coordinator. "Round One" Gregg's self produced debut CD, points to the future of Modern Blues / Rock Fusion, and has sold thousands on the British and European festival, concert and club circuit. Be prepared to witness a revelation....... Gregg Wright will surely leave you breathless and blown away!" [ from http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/greggwright ]

Gregg Wright is a master guitarist who has stunned global audiences by his electrifying live performances. Gregg began his pro career on the U.S. Southern circuit, opening for artists like Albert King. He's toured and recorded with Mick Fleetwood, Michael Jackson, The Gap Band, Spencer Davis and a whole lot more. A much in demand session player, he's a very gifted guitar player. The guy is also a good vocalist. In itself, "Round One" is not an album that opens any new avenues in rock music. There is nothig innovative in the six album tracks. What is brilliant about the album is the sheer sophistication and dynamism of Gregg Wright's incredible guitar playing which is certainly displayed here.
