A big helping of tradition with a side of class

Just Wright for Christmas
Just Wright for Christmas
By Danny Wright

Moulin D'Or Records: 1992

This review first appeared in the December 11, 1992 issue of the North County Blade-Citizen (now North County Times).

Pianist Danny Wright, another of the excellent keyboardists from the piano-oriented Moulin D'Or label, presents a strong collection of traditional holiday material in a chamber music setting, joined by violinist Gale Hess and oboist/English horn player Steve Pettey.

There's nothing particularly innovative here; just great music performed with verve and refinement. If you like your Christmas music traditional in both selection and performance, "Just Wright" is likely to be just right.
