Jazz organist Cory Henry charts with live gospel album

CRITICALLY acclaimed organist Cory Henry who, as well as being a member of the Grammy winning instrumental fusion band Snarky Puppy, has worked with such acts as Yolanda Adams, Kirk Franklin and P Diddy, is enjoying a stint on Billboard's Gospel Chart with his album 'The Revival'.
