About this deal

Even if you're a dance aficionado you will have heard this track thanks to the excellent house reworking by Claptone which is also included on this Deluxe Edition. The lyrics are heart-on-sleeve, and occasionally odd, but Porter's rich baritone oozes confidence and brings each syllable life". 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. So for me Gregory … lets have more of this… it’s unique and refreshing…and transcends your earlier mainstream jazz albums.

In this arrangement there’s a lead voice some of the time but you can easily adapt it for a group of singers if you prefer. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. A wide range of music styles can be found on this album - jazz, gospel, ballad, blues, soul - which help paint a pallet of images and textures for the listener.Those in the know, know Blue Note records don't release anything not up to their ridiculously high standards, so even if you don't know Mr Porter (you should) you can be assured that this album is no run of the mill offering. Every detail in the bass, cymbal etc is presented and every hammer strike in the piano carries a meaningful emotion.

The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products. In fact this could be easier listening for anybody new to Gregory Porter, than the two previous albums. Hailed by public and critics alike, Liquid Spirit won the Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Album in 2014. Close your eyes and on a decent system this guy is right there with his band a few feet in front of you, delivering a pitch and note perfect performance with nowhere to hide. Each part gets a share of the gospel harmonies and your singers need to be on their toes with rhythm and timing.

Marking the 10th anniversary of the album, Blue Note presents a special vinyl edition bringing together the original album on 2LP and a disc of bonus tracks and remixes, with 5 tracks available on vinyl for the first time.
