He has rocked stages across the US from the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans to The Legendary Apollo Theater in Harlem, USA. He has shared stages with the likes of the legendary Twinkie Clarke, Soul Singer Tony Terry and Master comedian Rodney Perry. He IS the Smooth Jazz Phenomenon. He is the one, J. Henry.
Journell Henry aka J. Henry, hails from the Jazz Capital of the World, New Orleans. This Crescent City native has been dazzling audiences across the U.S. for the last 20 years. Known by his gift for music since he was 9, J. studied under the mentorship of New Orleans Jazz Great Pierre Poree and Brian Graber, formerly of the Glenn Miller Orchestra. Katrina brought Journell to Atlanta, where he continued to expand and perfect his signature sound. After almost 2 years of writing and production, J. Henry has released his appropriately entitled debut album, “Long Time Coming”.
J. Henry’s live performance is mesmerizingly interactive. The energy and emotion that he puts into every performance draws audiences into an incredible love story and a return to the original live music experience. The J. Henry Experience.
With the release of LONG TIME COMING, there has been a resurgence of the live music experience and a major shot in the arm for Smooth Jazz worldwide. The album has been incredibly well received especially in the UK and Spain.
When it comes to his music and the effect that J. Henry is having on Smooth Jazz overall, Rod Lucas of Lucas Media in the UK said it best. “Fantastic”
