Just listen to the single, Work It Out, taken from his solo debut, Cory Wong and the Green Band, is enough to realise that you are in the presence of a musician who is going to make people talk about him. He comes from Minneapolis, the city of Prince, and you can hear it. He came to the fore as guitarist of the young stateside band, Vulfpeck, who, after having cleverly trawled through the glorious period of seventies funk, relaunched themselves with a large measure of success. Cory Wong, after collaborating with The Blind Boys of Alabama and Fearless Flyers, decided to set up on his own. His is a mixture of funk, funk and more funk. Optimistic music, as the title of his latest single attests.
