Cory Henry is a multi-instrumentalist and producer primarily known for harmonically rich organ playing that owes a greater debt to the virtuosic unpredictability of Tatum and Peterson than it does to Jimmy Smith and other members of the Hammond organ pantheon. In his best moments he seems to capture the breadth of the jazz and gospel idioms and produce something altogether new through his unique blending of the two genres.
Henry has done television work playing on the third season of Sunday's Best for BET and on the Jimmy Fallon Show. He has worked with Yolanda Adams, Sara Bareilles, Stanley Brown, Ray Chew and The Crew, P. Diddy, and many others. His latest release, First Steps, was released in the spring of 2014 and went to no.1 on the iTunes Jazz Chart.
Dennis Montgomery III is a pianist, organist, and Berklee professor. Montgomery has been the director for the Berklee Reverence Gospel Ensemble for nearly 30 years.
