Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre.

Herman Wright was a jazz bassist from Detroit, Michigan and later resided in Harlem, New York City until his death.

He began on drums as a teen before ultimately settling on upright bass. He worked with Dorothy Ashby, Terry Gibbs,[1] Yusef Lateef, George Shearing, Doug Watkins and on one occasion substituted Charles Mingus when the latter wanted to play piano.[2] He can also be heard on Allen Ginsberg's Ginsberg Sings Blake.[3]

He had three sons, Herman Wright Jr.(brass and woodwinds), Paris Wright (drums), and Dewayne Wright (piano).
