Keyboard virtuoso Cory Henry has shared a new live album, Operation Funk (Live). The album features his band, Funk Apostles, as well as special guests Kamasi Washington and Eric Gales.
The album is essentially a live version of Henry’s album Operation Funk from earlier this year, with a tracklist including many of the same songs, plus a few bonus tracks. The only song from Operation Funk missing from the live version is “Good Times”. The live album’s opening track, “Lead Ya”, is new, and a couple others, including “Happy Days” and “Rise”, are drawn from 2020’s Something to Say.
Operation Funk (the studio version) earned a nomination for Best Progressive R&B Album at the 2023 Grammys, marking Henry’s second nomination in the category in two years after Something to Say was nominated in 2022.
Operation Funk (Live) is available now on all streaming platforms. Listen via Soundcloud in the player below. Cory Henry has upcoming shows in Sweden, Norway, and the Netherlands. For a full list of tour dates and ticketing details, visit his website.
