Gregory Porter In Concert At Buff State Sunday February 22nd

Gregory_PorterFamed male jazz vocalist Gregory Porter returns to Buffalo tomorrow.  As part of the Great Performers Series at Buffalo State College in Rockwell Hall, Porter will be in concert tomorrow night – Sunday February 22nd at 8pm. 

Here is what reviewers have said about Gregory Porter and the write up by Buff State:

At the start of 2010, the buzz about Los Angeles-born, Brooklyn-based jazz and soul vocalist Gregory Porter was a strong, steady murmur, fueled by a growing crowd of fans. When Wynton Marsalis selected the then-unknown singer to perform a residency with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, people took notice. Now, just a few years later, NPR Music has hailed him as “the next great male jazz singer.” A disarmingly sincere performer with a groove that never quits, Porter is that rare jazz vocalist with true star power, combining the big heart of a gospel shouter with the honeyed tone of a crooner. His album Liquid Spirit, which has gospel, blues, and R&B influences, was recently awarded the 2014 Grammy Award for “Best Vocal Jazz Album.”

No doubt an entertaining performer who wowed Buffalo audiences a few short years ago at the Albright-Know Art Gallery. 

Here is a video of Gregory Porter performing one of my favorites – Hey Laura:
