Aristocrat released one recording by jazz bassist Eugene Wright and his Dukes of Swing. Eugene Joseph Wright was born May 29, 1923 and is thought to be still living. Shortly after the Aristocrat session he joined Dave Brubeck’s famous Quartet and is the last living member of that famous jazz combo. Since then he has played with many of the very big stars of Jazz, including Count Basie.
