Gregory Porter’s Contemporary Jazz Is More Than “Pretty”

An exceedingly “Pretty” slice of jazz from Nat King Cole inspired singer Gregory Porter, hailing from Brooklyn, NY.

“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,” say GiantStep, who recently offered up the song for free download [Click/Save-As].

They’re quite right about that sax – and with it, Porter’s smooth vocal strength shines on this accessible slice of rousing jazz.

It’s been a long day… and to end yours, this might be just the track.
