Album Notes
James F. Wright’s very popular CD "The Captain" was originally released in 2001. The Captain contains original material written by Wright as well as songs written by Senator Orrin G. Hatch, and Lowell Alexander, Kenny Loggins as well as others. “The Captain” was arranged by New Age artist, Greg Hansen, and features the guitar work of smooth jazz artist Michael Dowdle.

The Deseret News in Salt Lake City said "James F. Wright’s voice is sweet and grainy, all raw sugar." "Wright enjoys “story songs.” He’s at ease with a guitar in his hands. He’s gone to great lengths to develop a unique voice and style. Wright has assembled a garden variety of songs for this CD that will appeal to a variety of tastes. The album is called “The Captain” the title cut with a potpourri of material loosely held together by a nautical theme. There is the song “Ship of Dreams,” with words by Senator Orrin Hatch and music by the respected Christian tunesmith, Lowell Alexander. “Watching the River Run,” a catchy Loggins & Messina number is included, as is “Overboard,” a song by three of country music’s most noteworthy songwriters, T. Graham Brown, Wayland Holyfield and Verlin Thompson."

“The Captain” was written by Wright’s sister, Karolyn Kay Danielson. For good measure, Wright has also slipped in several of his personal compositions, including the touching tribute “Like a Man,” and a reprise of his signature composition, “Roses.” Hatch adds another number, “If Only,” to the mix."

"Greg Hansen did the arrangements, adding some nice Celtic-sounding hornpipe to the accompaniment. And Wright’s corps of back-up people is strong, featuring names like Mike Dowdle, Felicia Sorenson and Roger Hoffman."

"It’s music James has called “power folk music.” Jerry Johnston, Deseret News.
