Cory Henry at the Bethesda Blues & Jazz Supper Club

I was first introduced to Cory Henry while watching the memorial services for Melvin Crispell.  Musicians from all around came to honor Crispell, a legendary and world-renowned gospel & jazz composer and musician. While I didn't know Melvin by name, I was more than familiar with his work - Hezekiah Walker’s “Jesus Is My Help” and “Wonderful Is Your Name”; and James Hall Worship & Praise tracks “Caught Up” and “He Took My Place.” During the service, a musician named Cory Henry got on the organ to play tribute and blew me away the soulful & heartfelt melody of Crispell tunes.

A few weeks ago, I got the chance to see him perform live at the Bethesda Blues & Jazz Supper Club in promotion of his newest album entitled "The Revival". Since my first introduction, I had mostly heard him play as part of the jazz collective known as Snarky Puppy - so I was pretty stoked to check out a solo performance. Of course, a grabbed a couple of videos from the show to share with y'all. Check them out below!

Also, if you haven't already done so, take a full listen of "The Revival" below!
