Marshall "Marty" S. Wright, Jr.
Marty was a charter member of the Royal Garden Swing Orchestra since its inception in 1984. He was a featured saxophone performer on all 3 recordings of RGSO and provided much of the musical arrangements for the ensemble. His contributions to the musical fabric of RGSO was immeasurable.
Marty's smile, wry humor and musical expertise routinely propelled the group to a wonderful excellence. He was admired by musicians and fans alike. He influenced, in countless ways, all those who were graced by his presence.
We will miss him greatly and know he is now playing lead saxophone in some swinging group somewhere.
As a man and a musician, Marty was described by many as "One in a Million".
Thanks Marty for the wonderful times we all shared with you!
Onward and Upward!
