Winston Wright (1944 – 1993) was a Jamaican keyboardist. He was a member of Tommy McCook's Supersonics, and acknowledged as Jamaica's master of the Hammond organ. Winston was born in May Pen, Jamaica in 1944 and died in Kingston, Jamaica in 1993. He attended Glenmuir High School where he learned the organ on an old Clavonette Organ. While he was in school, he played with a local group called the Mercury Band based at the Capri Theatre in May Pen, much to his father ire. Tommy McCook saw Winston play at this time and he was invited to join the Supersonics, Treasure Isle house band. Perhaps Wright's best known work is as the uncredited lead organist on Harry J Allstars' 1969 instrumental hit "The Liquidator". Harry J Allstars was the name given to the flexible roster of musicians that amounted to the house band at Harry J studio in Kingston, Jamaica. Wright produced a solo single: "Top Secret", with the B-side "Crazy Rhythm" in 1970.
