April 6, 2016 – Cory Henry’s new album The Revival has received a growing groundswell of critical praise, and it has a chart debut to match. Out now on GroundUP Music/Universal Music Classics, the album debuted at #2 on the Jazz Traditional album chart and #3 on the Jazz Albums chart. Yesterday, NPR All Things Considered sang the album’s praises in a review, saying Henry’s “musical charisma is a match for a nearly 400 pound organ.”

Henry has been playing the Hammond B-3 organ since he was two years old. It was his first love, and on The Revival, he has crafted a tribute that shows where the instrument has been and where it can be taken in his monumentally talented hands. Henry takes the organ across multiple genres – gospel, R&B, jazz, soul – in a performance that needs to be seen as much as heard.

A two-time GRAMMY winner with Snarky Puppy, Henry is headed to Europe in May for a tour, before returning to the U.S. for a New York City show on June 16th with his band The Funk Apostles. He also joins the 2016 Pickathon line-up alongside acts like Ibeyi, BADBADNOTGOOD, Jeff Tweedy and Beach House. Full list of world tour dates below.
