Corey Taylor Wants To Record A Dark Jazz Album” At Some Point

But it won’t sell shit”, apparently.

While Corey Taylor is very much in Slipknot mode this year, the musician has revealed that, some day, he’d like to branch out and record a dark jazz album”.

Speaking to RadioVegas.Rocks’ Chaotic Radio, Corey shut down the idea that he’d ever record country music – but came up with a pretty unique and interesting alternative. 

It’s not to say that I couldn’t write stuff like that. My interest would be more singer/songwriter vibe, like Squeeze or something like that,” he says.

Or, and I’ve actually been thinking about doing something like this, putting together a quartet or a quintet and doing a jazz album, like a dark jazz album and recording it live in a room.”

Corey remains perhaps too modest about expectations away from both the Knot and Stone Sour, though: It won’t sell shit. It would really just be for my own personal collection. I love jazz. A lot of people don’t realise that. I listen to a lot of 40s and 50s jazz.”

In the meantime, until some Corey-style jazz does arrive, let’s all enjoy this…
