Music Break!: The incredible Gregory Porter


I can not live on politics alone. There is also music. Particularly R&B and jazz.

I was watching some Jill Scott (again) on YouTube which put me in the neighborhood of Gregory Porter videos and that was it.

If you’re short on time watch for only 4 minutes.


If you like that song and performance then this – this – this –>>>

A 49 minute recording of a December 2012 concert in Amsterdam (with full Metropole Orchestra). The audience was just as into the experience as Gregory was [by the end of the performance they are – uncoached – doing call and response with him] and hell, when he’s on it he is on it. Gregory is a 100% THERE performer.

Gregory Porter won the 2014 Grammy for best jazz vocal album, Liquid Spirit. So well-deserved.

Wanting more?

His world tour comes as close as Ohio and Quebec in June. (Maybe he’ll fill in that 8 day gap with a visit to Chicago? (PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE))

Here’s a nice video interview from irockjazzmusicTV.

BBC Radio 2 interview of Gregory Porter by Sir Terry Wogan (includes two live songs).
