Jazz à Juan - 11-20 Juillet 2014

Gregory Porter

"The voice is the music of the soul." If there is one man to whom this aphorism of Barbara fits like a glove, it is Gregory Porter, a four-foot-tall quadra colossus, a "gentleman" in a three-piece suit with his heart on his sleeve, always wearing his eternal "apple cap". After patiently waiting for his hour of glory on the stages of musicals, he has imposed himself in a few years with the strength of an exceptional timbre inherited from the gospel tradition, as well as from the loving listening of Nat King Cole. Wynton Marsalis is eloquent in his well-known sobriety: "A fantastic young singer".

Everyone remembers his superb performance in the summer of 2014 on the "Jazz à Juan" stage and his unforgettable duet with Stevie Wonder. His voice, evoking legendary crooners as much as the great interpreters of soul music (Marvin Gaye and Donny Hathaway), is one of those that cannot be forgotten, filling the space, but dialoguing just as effortlessly with the instruments that accompany it. Especially since this subtle baritone, who won a Grammy Award® in 2014 with Liquid Spirit, is also a skillful composer who masterfully takes on the junction between jazz and soul and reveals himself on stage as a remarkable showman, as sensitive as he is generous.
