About this deal

Gregory reaches inside your mind with an honesty that is rare with so many over-produced albums these days. After two solid albums on Motema, both of which earned Grammy nominations, Gregory Porter made his Blue Note debut with Liquid Spirit in 2013.

Liquid Spirit is a metaphor for water, when something is liquid it’s quick at hand so it’s like having that energy and that spirit and that soul accessible. Whether you’d like to enquire about a product, claim a free sample , or simply have a chat, please get in touch below! The runaway track here is "Liquid Spirit" a no nonsense song about the greed of man (read capitalism) that deprives people of their basic needs like water. This is still evident to some extent and Chip Crawford, as main collaborator and pianist is excellent throughout - whether as accompanist or soloist. After two solid albums on Motema, both of which earned GRAMMY nominations, Gregory Porter made his Blue Note debut with Liquid Spirit in 2013.Big enough to organise events for over 1,000 guests, but small enough to care about the finer details that we know will make your special event even more memorable than you could imagine. His playing on the Jazz standard "I Fall in Love too Easily" is the real thing - a wonderful slow ballad that at nearly 8 minutes, stands out as the exception here and an authentic Jazz performance, that would grace any New York Jazz club or classic album.

The whole album is cohesive - but the longer tracks have been left to the end - hopefully people will get to these, as for me, this is the most impressive part of the album. In this arrangement there’s a lead voice some of the time but you can easily adapt it for a group of singers if you prefer. Close your eyes and on a decent system this guy is right there with his band a few feet in front of you, delivering a pitch and note perfect performance with nowhere to hide. Firstly the quality of the recording seems excellent to me, close your eyes and you can almost see the band around Gregory Porter. Hailed by public and critics alike, Liquid Spirit won the Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Album in 2014 and has sold over a million copies worldwide.

The Grammy award winning Jazz vocalist is probably one of the coolest people walking the planet with his incredible presence and god given voice. We also sell coffee-making equipment to help perfect your brew, and gift sets to treat a special someone. There are few albums where when you want to sit back with a glass of wine and unwind that you don’t end up reaching for the skip button for some of the tracks… but this is one of those rarities. Even if you're a dance aficionado you will have heard this track thanks to the excellent house reworking by Claptone which is also included on this Deluxe Edition. He is now, appropriately enough on Blue Note - as this is clearly the sound that Gregory Porter loves - all those classic albums on that label, from the period when Jazz was the popular music of the day.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. The Independent's Phil Johnson noted "The soulful vocalist follows his two excellent indie albums with a major-label debut that contains few surprises yet deepens the story so far".Those in the know, know Blue Note records don't release anything not up to their ridiculously high standards, so even if you don't know Mr Porter (you should) you can be assured that this album is no run of the mill offering. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Do yourself a favour, if you're feeling stressed, pour yourself a drink of your choosing and put this album on.
