Gregory Porters a hip little singer just the sort we love to discover in jazz and the type that only comes around once in a blue moon Like Jon Hendricks Mark Murphy or Kurt Elling all perfect references for Porters style Greg has a wonderful way of coming up with his own lyrics for a tune making him way more than just a singer of standards and instead a richly expressive voice that has every bit to offer as you might get from a jazz instrumentalist The arrangements are great too handled by Porter with help from pianist Chip Crawford and producer Kamau Kenyatta bold soulful and soaring on the best tracks all in beautiful declaration of Gregorys rich power and presence Titles include a great version of Wayne Shorters Black Nile and the original tracks 1960 What Lonely One Water Pretty Illusion and Magic Cup
