Cordoba "Specter"

Cordoba recently channeled the scariest parts of 2020 into a spooky new album, Specter, which dropped the day before Halloween. The sextet uses their signature left of center jazz fusion grooves as a bed for lyrics that touch on topics like gentrification, police brutality, and escalating social unrest.

The group's lead singer Brianna Tong was on the most recent episode of the wonderful podcast Music Therapy with Jessica Risker discussing the new album, it's themes, and how to stay creative in these times.

Back in March, just as all of this was beginning, they dropped the first single from Specter, "Diluvian", and in June they released "Factory".
