All Jazzed Up

Gregory Porter isn’t your typical jazz singer. A former football star whose pursuit of professional sports was cut short by injury, he took a circuitous route to the stage, where he found his true calling. There, Porter blossomed into a Grammy Award-winning vocalist the New York Times describes as a “booming baritone with a gift for earthy refinement and soaring uplift.” Always clad in a suit and his signature hat, Porter has a quirky style that echoes his unconventional approach to jazz. A hybrid of blues, soul and gospel, his sound reflects a childhood spent listening to Nat King Cole rather than conservatory training, but listeners can’t tell the difference.
