An artist whose music is at once timeless yet utterly of its time, Gregory Porter solidified his standing as his generation’s most soulful jazz singer-songwriter with the recent release of Take Me to the Alley, the much-anticipated follow-up to his million-selling, Grammy-winning 2013 Blue Note debut Liquid Spirit. He’s earned comparisons to Nat King Cole and Bill Withers thanks to a rich voice that fuses jazz, soul, and R&B. He’s worked with everyone from Buddy Guy to Dianne Reeves to Disclosure. On signature songs like the blithe “Be Good (Lion’s Song)” and his remake of “The ‘In’ Crowd,” Porter channels the spirit of his idol Cole and proves he can effortlessly combine the power of a gospel shouter with the honeyed tone of a crooner.
