About this deal

The band accompany his buttery smooth vocals beautifully, not pulling attention away from his voice but playing with enough flair to make you smile at their artistry in every song.

In fact this could be easier listening for anybody new to Gregory Porter, than the two previous albums. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Blue Note have found a once in a generation voice which will hopefully be given the creative support to continue making such masterpieces.Do yourself a favour, if you're feeling stressed, pour yourself a drink of your choosing and put this album on.

Hailed by public and critics alike, Liquid Spirit won the Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Album in 2014. However, this album sees a move away to more and shorter tracks - mostly around 3-4 minutes, with less of the Jazz improvisation and solos we had on the previous two albums.

The runaway track here is "Liquid Spirit" a no nonsense song about the greed of man (read capitalism) that deprives people of their basic needs like water. We are happy to share our knowledge and passion with you, providing expertise and support for your new or evolving business. Musicianship is excellent throughout, but I would like to have heard more improvisation and real Jazz - more of a live gig feel. But most other tracks are kept short with the voice dominating and there is no shortage of tracks that could be played on the radio. It won the best 2014 Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Album, and reached top 10 in Denmark, Germany, Netherlands and the UK.

Gregory Porter has been taken up by radio stations like Jazz FM and this material is more radio-friendly, with the vocals clearly to the fore.There are a fair number of reviews that say this album is not as good as previous ones, but for me this is an all time classic.
