Description

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. Movin'" also has some of the authentic Jazz of previous albums and "Liquid Spirit" is probably the most exciting track with its syncopated Double Bass line driving the band. 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. All songs written by Gregory Porter, and arranged by Porter, Chip Crawford and Kamau Kenyatta, except where noted. 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.

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. Gregory reaches inside your mind with an honesty that is rare with so many over-produced albums these days.I could go into details about the melancholy blues genius that is Water Under Bridges, the perfectly arranged cover of The In Crowd or the other 15 or so tracks (there are 19 presented) but all are just superb. Platinum in the UK and Germany, gold in France, the Netherlands and Austria, the album has sold over a million copies worldwide. Mike Hobart of Financial Times wrote "Gregory Porter ’s largely self-penned major label debut is an artful and free-spirited blend of love songs, social commentary and reflections on life. While the whole may not have the impact of the previous two albums, it's still a huge pleasure to have new material from Gregory Porter and further chances to hear that wonderful voice. Alongside our coffee beans, we can also supply your business with commercial machinery and also provide machines installation, service, repair and water filters.

Hailed by public and critics alike, Liquid Spirit won the Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Album in 2014. From tempo tracks (Liquid Spirit) to quiet ballads (When Love Was King) the sound was deep and engaging. After two solid albums on Motema, both of which earned Grammy nominations, Gregory Porter made his Blue Note debut with Liquid Spirit in 2013.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.

Firstly the quality of the recording seems excellent to me, close your eyes and you can almost see the band around Gregory Porter. We offer a range of machines in multiple configurations, and we’ll work closely with you to find the perfect fit for your business. This is firmly in the mould of Water and Be Good and it sounds very much like those abums - with the same all acoustic, small Jazz group feel. Blue Note have found a once in a generation voice which will hopefully be given the creative support to continue making such masterpieces. 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.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. His playing on the Jazz standard "I Fall in Love too Easily" is the real thing - a wonderful slow ballad that at nearly 8 minutes, stands out as the exception here and an authentic Jazz performance, that would grace any New York Jazz club or classic album.

The strength of Liquid Spirit lies in Porter's songs, based upon personal experiences with a relatable and emotional immediacy. Big enough to organise events for over 1,000 guests, but small enough to care about the finer details that we know will make your special event even more memorable than you could imagine. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. There are few albums where when you want to sit back with a glass of wine and unwind that you don’t end up reaching for the skip button for some of the tracks… but this is one of those rarities.Berlin based enigma Claptone has just announced to the world that a new remix of Gregory Porter is coming out soon. The sound is more Blues-Soul than Jazz which is where the problem possibly lies with the purists, but the superb “stripped back acoustic” sound makes this a very intimate listen. Hailed by public and critics alike, Liquid Spirit won the Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Album in 2014 and has sold over a million copies worldwide. After two solid albums on Motema, both of which earned GRAMMY nominations, Gregory Porter made his Blue Note debut with Liquid Spirit in 2013. 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.
