Music Recommendation #2: Kevin Wright/The Party and the Guests
Kevin Wright is a musical genius who has been involved in music for nearly 30 years through various music projects including his solo “Mr Wright” and “The Dreamers”. Kevin Wright’s style is very unique and is described commonly by fans as lounge or bossa nova.
His influences are diverse and include some of the following: soundtrack music, Serge Gainsbourg, Joao Gilberto, Syd Barrett, Nat King Cole, Robert Wyatt, Avant Garde, etc.
His long awaited solo album “Diary of a Fool” was released in 2009 and was followed by an announcement that it would be his last solo album. Now, Kevin Wright is shifting a lot of attention towards his NEW music project called “The Party and the Guests” (pictured above with member Boll Bundy). Together with Boll Bundy, they have made an album of well crafted songs which should see a release sometime early on in 2010.
