Music Break!: The incredible Gregory Porter

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.
I.
Am.
Hooked.

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).
