"Porter has a vibrant expression in his voice that closes the distance between himself and the listener." — Los Angeles Times
Los Angeles-born, Brooklyn-based jazz/soul vocalist Gregory Porter
is a disarmingly sincere performer with a groove that never quits, a voice of incredible virtuosity and a universal appeal as a songwriter. Porter's lyrics speak as dreams often do, in languages of image and emotion, communicating subtly but thoroughly. Accompanying Porter are Chip Crawford
on piano, Emanuel Harrold
on drums, Aaron James
on bass and Yohsuke Satoh
His most recent album Liquid Dreams
won the 2014 Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Album.
