Serving the San Francisco Bay Area New Music Community

Cory Wright
Reeds player Cory Wright, educated at Oberlin Conservatory and the University of Southern California, has been involved in both the jazz and creative music worlds for the past 20 years, including time spent in New York, Los Angeles and his current home in the San Francisco bay area.

His recent projects reflect his interest in blurring the distinction between composed and improvised material and in combining the harmonious with the atonal, and groove with the arrhythmic.

Cory has played in ensembles lead by Anthony Braxton, Vinny Golia, Eddie Gale, Adam Rudolph and Yusef Lateef. He is currently a member of bay area groups Marches, Bristle, Wiener Kids, Daniel Popsicle, and the Oakland Active Orchestra, and leads his own projects Green Mitchell and the Cory Wright Quintet.
