Greg Randolph of The Republic of Jazz deemed “Menage a Trey” to be his “Favorite CD of 2015”. His review states that “Wright’s tone is reminiscent of Trane but in a much more subdued manner (and I say that as high praise) and with a funky early Grover Washington Jr. flavour on top…I cannot recommend this disc highly enough. Finding an entire CD that flows like a telling story is rare. This is the one.”
