MUSIC REVIEW BY Rotcod Zzaj, Improvijazzation

If what your ears are thirsting for is some great jazz/Americana/bluesy jazz, Corey's guitar work will sit just right with you for that. He's actually released several previous albums, & though this is my first listen, I'm sure you'll be hearing much more from this talented player. Tunes like the 7:17 opener, "She's Gone", give yu plenty of time to absorb his laid-back, yet subtly crafted high-energy style. Songs like "John Hardy" demonstrate just how comfortable Corey is with merging a jazz feel into a tune that might otherwise be considered "bluesy Americana". This is one of those kind of albums that you'll find yourself looping over & over again, & so it's bound to be a classic on jazz channels across the globe. I totally dug (deep down) the title track, "Factory Girl"... in fact, I'm asking the promoter to make sure they send me any of Corey's releases in need of review, 'coz I like the soaring guitar on this one so much. From a jazz/blues standpoint, it was the 5:37 "Cluck ol' Hen" that got my vote for personal favorite of the nine songs on the album... some great keyboard work on this tune, too. I give Corey & his compadres ((Zach Lapidus - Keyboards, SuperCollider; Jeremy Allen - Acoustic and Electric Bass; Matt Jorgensen - Drums; Michael Spiro - Percussion) a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an "EQ" (energy quotient) rating of 4.99 for his fine musical experience.
