Interview: Gregory Porter, Part 1


Jazz singer Gregory Porter released his debut album, Water, in 2010, at the ripe old age of 38, and was rewarded with a Grammy nomination for Best Jazz Vocal Album. His follow-up album, Be Good, released in 2012, earned another Grammy nomination, for Best Traditional R&B Performance.

In mid-September, Porter released his third album, Liquid Spirit, on the historic Blue Note Records imprint, and in early September, played gigs at the Blue Note clubs in Tokyo and Nagoya.

I spoke with Gregory in Tokyo during his trip to Japan in early September.
