Winston Wright is another unsung hero from the Jamaican musical cannon. Although
many might not know his name, you will have heard him on many records in your
collections. When we say that it was he who played that classic Hammond organ riff
on the 1969 ‘Liquidator’ classic, as part of the Harry J Allstars, we might begin to
appreciate his talents that bit more. But not only this, many 1970’s classics carry
his organ, piano and arranging skills and even before that time, many tunes cut in the
1960’s,as part of Duke Reid’s house band Tommy McCook’s Supersonics, carried the
Winston Wright signature sound.

Winston Wright (b 1944 , Jamaica) began his musical career in the 1960’s as a session
player and soon became an integral part of the Treasure Isle Studio house band, that
became known as Tommy McCook’s Supersonics . He played on many of the
Rocksteady era hits that Duke Reid ruled the island with between 1966-1968.

His mastery of the Hammond organ made him an in demand session player. One such
was Harry J studio’s that had a massive hit in the UK in 1969 with ‘Liquidator’ as the
Harry J Allstars of which Winston was a member. The same year saw him cut some
great tunes as part of Clancy Eccles’ Dynamites.

The 1970’s saw Winston Wright working closely with Dynamic Sounds Studios’ nucleus
of musicians Cutting material for all the top producers of the time including numerous sides
for Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee, which we have focused on for this set of tunes. From 1975 onwards
Winston Wright was a member of Toots and the Maytals’ touring band, but we celebrate
here his mighty fine studio work. Adding his touches to many a fine rhythm as only
Winston could we hope you enjoy the set.
