Gregory Porter

All About Jazz

On Saturday night, vocalist Gregory Porter and his signature hat hit the stage at the University of Denver’s Newman Center, 2344 E. Iliff. Since 2010, Porter has exploded on the scene with two early discs on Motéma and several more on Blue Note. Those albums that so well captured the Los Angeles, California-born singer’s deep and engaging voice which also captured two Grammys® for Porter, who surrounds himself with strong players.

The most interesting musical visitor to town this week is saxophonist Greg Osby who will be at Nocturne on Thursday. Born in St. Louis in 1960, Osby came to New York after a stint at Boston’s Berklee College of Music. He worked with a range of top-shelf players such as Woody Shaw and Ron Carter and connected with fellow saxophonist Steve Coleman and the musical banner labeled M-Base that injected a rap-hop element into the jazz sound and initially covered folk like singer Cassandra Wilson.

NPR dubbed two-time Grammy Award®-winning singer Gregory Porter “the next great male jazz singer.” Porter writes and performs songs that dexterously weave together the threads of gospel, rhythm and blues, jazz and soul, producing a pure tapestry of sound. The New York Times says Porter is “a jazz singer of thrilling presence, a booming baritone with a gift for earthy refinement and soaring uplift.”
