Keyboard virtuoso and Chief Funk Apostle Cory Henry has released his latest solo album, Best of Me, via
Henry House Entertainment / Culture Collective.
Produced, arranged, performed and co-written by Cory Henry, the mostly-instrumental, 11-track album is a showcase for his many, varied talents. Throughout the record, listeners will hear the prolific Henry on vocals, Hammon B3 organ, Moog, and the electric string instrument Harpejji.
With a sound that Cory has christened “future soul”—a groove-heavy fusion of funk, blues, gospel, jazz and R&B—the new record seeks to mine the greatness of ’70s soul forefathers like Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway, James Brown, and more to continue the musical storyline of a time Henry calls “the greatest era of music.”
