Grammy nominee, Gregory Porter is a newer voice in jazz, with sounds deeply rooted in tradition. His combo is acoustic, straight-ahead and more than proficient, creating context and support for Gregory’s baritone voice. Very sincere and moving delivery. Very cool.
Jazz News reports: “Blue Note Records and Universal Music Classics & Jazz have announced the signing of singer/songwriter Gregory Porter. According to a press release from Blue Note, ‘Porter has been in the studio with his working band and producer Brian Bacchus recording his third album and major label debut, which will be released worldwide on Blue Note Records this fall.’”
Congratulations, Mr. Porter. I look forward to hearing more!
