Description

Follow-up disc Be Good (2012) nailed it again with the modern classic “On My Way To Harlem” conjuring up images of Duke Ellington while Chip Crawford and the guys set up the mood. The sweet proposal of “Real Good Hands” is another honey that calls to mind the legends of sophisticated seventies soul. The intriguing “Bling Bling” is a scorcher with its scat break and high-energy arrangement and Gregory’s take on Nat Adderley’s “Work Song” brings the house down. This really is like luxuriating in classic-era Blue Note but with a defiantly contemporary twist. UNWIN, STEPHEN (September 13, 2013). "CD review: Gregory Porter - Liquid Spirit". Daily Express .

Nicholas, Jessica (12 April 2017). "Gregory Porter review: Rare gifts from a jazz great". The Sydney Morning Herald . Retrieved 3 July 2018. Recommencing with the water analogy that characterized his debut disc, Porter saw Liquid Spirit as a logical progression in his burgeoning discography as it touched on some of the same themes, particularly the highs and lows of romance, his childhood, and socio-political observations. The strength of Liquid Spirit lies in Porter’s songs, based upon personal experiences with a relatable and emotional immediacy. Even more, his hooky melodies penetrate instantly.

Liquid Spirit was recorded at Sear Sound, keeping it on a New York tip, and mixed at The Grateful Shed. Blue Note regular Brian Bacchus provides the stellar production. This is not just a disc worth discovering; it’s one to be cherished. Contemporaries and peers concur on this vibrant talent. Saxophonist David Murray featured Gregory on his album Be My Monster Loveand the great Anita Wilson featured him on her Motown Christmas. Instantly recognisable thanks to his trademark Kangol flat cap Gregory has sent critics scurrying for superlatives with many seeing him as heir apparent to a rich tradition of soul greats including Bill Withers, Donny Hathaway and even Nat King Cole. In his own mind, he seeks to nourish with sound and he succeeds. His wish is well stated. “I’m trying to come honestly, really trying to be unpretentious. I’m trying to be appealing, even as a jazz artist, to the non-jazz head. Trying to speak to them as well. I want to speak to the human heart.”And so to his major label breakthrough, the sparkling Liquid Spirit where he reworks “Water Under Bridges” as a mesmerizing duet with Laura Mvula. Around this time Porter also took a side trip and found space to duet with Brit-jazz sensation Jamie Cullum on a terrifically soulful “Don’t Let Me Misunderstood”.
