Joey Wright - Jalopy Review

This songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has shared the stage with Sarah Harmer, Crazy Strings, and wife Jenny Whiteley. And he still find time to put on an average of 150 shows per year.

Joey Wright describes his music as bluegrass and jazz. With instruments like the guitar, banjo, and mandolin the music on his latest 12 song CD of mostly original music 'Jalopy' definitely takes on the bluegrass flavour that at times resembles Ricky Skaggs. But with the jazz elements and the tunes that at times appear to be repetitive or to wander take on the feel of fellow banjo and bluegrass jass artist Bela Fleck. In fact listening to 'Jalopy' is almost like being at a Bela Fleck concert.

The one cover tune on the album is Wright's version of the duke Ellington piece 'come Sunday'.

On 'Jalopy' Wright demonstrates that just because two styles of music are thought to be very different, it doesn't mean that they can't fit together to form an interesting sound.
