A single piano.
A singular artist.
Bernard Wright at Tuesday Nite Jazz.

GRP Records signed the acclaimed keyboardist from Jamaica, Queens, in 1981. That same year, Bernard Wright released his debut album, Nard, tracks from which were prominently sampled in hits by Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Skee-Lo, and LL Cool J, among countless others.

Wright followed up with Funky Beat (1983) on Arista and Mr. Wright (1985) on Manhattan Records. The latter of these albums included his biggest R&B hit, "Who Do You Love". The video made for "Who Do You Love" is featured in the famous title sequence of Video Music Box. Wright performed the song on Soul Train in 1985.

Wright has also appeared on recordings by musicians such as Cameo, Bobby Brown, Pieces of a Dream, Charles Earland, Marcus Miller, and Miles Davis. He has shared stages with artists ranging from Wayne Shorter to Roberta Flack.

The concert and reception with the artist that follows are free and open to all ages, but seating in the historic sanctuary of St. Paul UMC Dallas at 1816 Routh Street in the Dallas Arts District is limited. Please reserve online at http://tuesdaynitejazz.org/next-at-tnj.html
