Current Project: Afro-Cuban Album

Posted: January 2, 2019

Corey is headed into studio around the middle of January to record his original music with musicians who are specialists in Afro-Cuban music.

From Corey, “I am totally stoked. I have been listening to a lot of this music and studying, but I understand that, at the end of the day, I’m a gringo so I’m not professing to doing a real Afro-Cuban album, but rather have my music interpreted by real Afro-Cuban and Latin artists. I’m very excited to hear what we come up with.”

There will, of course, be a lot of guitar on this record. Corey has been working closely with percussionist extraordinaire, Michael Spiro, to learn about the music, but also about the players, and some things about the culture. It is an exciting project with amazing players.
