According to Cory Henry, the Hammond organ is not appreciated in modern music as much as it should be – and he aims to change that. On the live album The Revival this multi-instrumentalist from Brooklyn, who has played with Nas, Bruce Springsteen, The Roots and in recent years mainly with Snarky Puppy, returns to his roots: the Hammond B3. In church, naturally, where it all started. The gospels and spirituals logically flow into the soul sound of Stevie Wonder. A follow-up album is on the way, recorded with Henry’s band The Funk Apostles. On this recording Henry takes us on a journey through his many and varied influences: Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye, Herbie Hancock, James Brown and Prince. Henry is mainly known as a musician who backs big names but now we hear him improvising his way through his own record collection which contains a wealth of music.
