Cory Wong can crank out tunes. In 2020 alone, he put out five, count them FIVE, albums and has followed that up with three more in 2021. And even with such a high volume, there’s clearly no quality sacrificed as he was even nominated for a 2020 Grammy, alongside Jon Batiste, for their collaborative album “Meditations.” Wong frequently seeks out other unique musical partners, as is the case with Turbo, his most recent collaboration with the “twisted pop trio” Dirty Loops. As the name suggests, this album is fast-paced, upbeat, and generally cheerful. It’s jazz with a kick in the ass and is sure to keep you guessing … and smiling at every turn.
Bonus Content: Dirty Loops first rose to prominence because of their out-of-the-box jazz-fusion arrangements of popular tunes, like Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” and Justin Bieber’s “Baby.” This album features a remake of the Michael Jackson classic, Thriller, and is one you absolutely can not miss!
