Guitarist extraordinaire Cory Wong announces the release of his eighth album of 2020. The Minneapolis, MN-based jazz funk virtuoso’s The Striped Album, arrives everywhere on Friday, October 23. The self-produced album finds Wong in typical giddy form. Ever the raconteur, Wong invites a variety of special guests to share in the merriment, including Kimbra, Tom Misch and blues great Joe Satriani whose feature on new song “MASSIVE” heralds today’s announcement.
JOE SATRIANI’S 18th solo album, Shapeshifting, debuts today on Billboard’s Top Albums Chart at #8! The album also debuts on the Top Internet Albums chart at #3 and on the Core Genre: Rock chart at #4. SATRIANI last made an appearance on the Billboard charts in 2018 when his What Happens Next album debuted at #9 on the Top Albums chart.
JOE SATRIANI has had a long and acclaimed solo career, his awards and accolades from fans and the industry alike are unending. Yet, through all of that, SATRIANI has often mentioned in interviews the musical trio that launched the next step in his musical career, his first band, the Squares, formed in Berkeley, CA in the late 70’s.
