Before he was the Grammy award winning Gregory Porter, he was just Gregory Porter, the incredibly awesome jazz singer. Here is a performance from The Jazzwoche Burghausen on March 16th, 2013. Gregory performs tracks from his first two releases Water and Be Good, both of which are available on Mr. Porter’s website. If you have heard Liquid Spirit then and love it as you should, then you will love these two albums as well. Gregory’s voice is just a dynamic live as it is on record. He is a real treasure to the Jazz community and I look forward to many years of amazing music from him.
The Personnel at this performance are:
GREGORY PORTER – vocals
YOSUKE SATO – alto sax
CHIP CRAWFORD – piano
AARON JAMES – bass
EMANUEL HARROLD – drums
JOHN FADDIS – trumpet (On My Way To Harlem, Work Song, & But Beautiful)
