Discovered as a member of the now unmissable collective Snarky Puppy, here is a name that’s worth remembering: Cory Henry. Raised on gospel in the churches of Brooklyn, Cory Henry is an organist, singer, pianist, composer and arranger. Not yet 30, he has collaborated with some of the biggest names in jazz and soul, such as Kenny Garrett, Lalah Hathaway and The Roots. Accompanied by his Funk Apostles, Cory Henry revisits soul and funk classics with a wild energy. The shadows of Jimmy Smith, Marvin Gaye, Prince and other masters are never far away, and the invitation to come together and dance is irresistible!
