Liquid Spirit marks Gregory Porter's Blue Note Records debut, which arrives on the heels of two critically acclaimed indie label albums that quickly propelled Porter to the upper echelon of contemporary male jazz singers and earned him two GRAMMY nominations. Don Was, President of Blue Note, encouraged Porter to stay true to his artistic vision. I firmly consider myself a jazz singer but I enjoy blues, southern soul, and gospel, Porter says, Those elements make their way inside my music. And I've always heard them in jazz.

Mr. Porter has a full rich tone that is made for the type of songs he sings on this album. His distinctive story-teller style is most enjoyable when he’s singing rhythmic hand-clapping, foot-stomping songs.
Liquid Spirit is a lyrically and rhythmically inspired song built on the foundation of all that is great about Rhythm and Blues. Musical Genocide is a smooth song that is thematically emotional. Free is song that has the authenticity of autographical blues. The “In” Crowd is as hip as its topic.
There is a refreshing musicality of the singing and instrumentation of this album. Vinyl is a perfect format for this Liquid Spirit.
During his set that weekend, Gregory Porter sang pretty much all of the songs from the Liquid Spirit CD. Being the first time I had listened to him, I discovered his smooth vocals and each song reminded me of the days when lyrics for songs mattered and the combination of vocals, jazzy themes and lyrics were spectacular.
I highly recommend this CD as well as his previous CD titled :Be Good". Both are a must for those of us with a quality music collection.
Good listening to you ....
