Gregory Porter: “Pretty” + MP3

Our friends at AMG have dubbed Gregory Porter to be “up there with José James,” as far as male vocalists in the amorphous genre called Jazz. You know how we feel about José James, and we’re more than grateful to hear all this new male vocal talent.

Download the song “Pretty” from his album Water. “Love makes us all crazy,” he says of this song. A soulful tribute to a woman from Porter’s past, “Pretty” is an understated ensemble piece that is bolstered by the alto sax work of Yoske Sato.

    This is dope! I’m in.

  • Belle Boussole

    This is very cool stuff, can’t wait to hear the rest. Reminds me a bit of Freddy Cole.

  • Lily Kane

    *whining* This is so romantic. Made up my mind: my future (phantom) husband will be a brilliant songwriter, and I’ll be his muse.
    Favorite lyric – “Her hand strokes the drum / she plays so fast / I can’t find the one.”

    Luscious stuff; love the sax, too.
