With his rich baritone sound and intelligent, sensual lyrics, Gregory Porter's star is rising fast. This highly anticipated debut recording, which features seven compelling originals and four standards, captures the intensity of his live performances and establishes an important new voice in jazz, gospel, and soul. Iconic Blue Note jazzman James Spaulding - noted for his classic recordings with Max Roach, Freddie Hubbard, and Bobby Hutcherson - plays a featured role in "Wisdom" and "Black Nile."
