Accolades for Gregory Porter don’t come any better: ‘the next big vocal jazz star’, ‘the brilliant new voice of jazz’, ‘the new king of jazz’. Take your pick -- he’s all of these and more.
Bursting onto the scene with his Grammy nominated CD, Water, in 2010, this Los Angeles born artist has blown away jazz lovers across America and Europe. His second CD, Be Good, was greeted with a further cascade of awards and nominations, anticipated by Soul Tracks magazine predicting‘we may have already heard the album of the year’.
He’s regularly compared to the greatest of the greats such as Joe Williams, Marvin Gaye and Nat King Cole so it’s no surprise that he recently won Rising Male Star Vocalist category in Downbeat magazine’s Critics’ Poll, the jazz media’s most important recognition.
On record, on stage, in the coolest clubs, singing his own songs or classics of the genre, Porter and his quintet fuses jazz and soul better than anyone else today. He’s the real deal — don’t miss him.
