Gregory Porter: "I feel like I have a mission with music."

Door Marc Zisman |

Exclusive meeting with the most soulful of jazz singers on the occasion of the release of "Still Rising - The Collection", a superb compilation mixing hits and rarities...





Compilations are always useful to take stock, to contemplate the passing of time and to slip in a few rarities... With Still Rising - The Collection, Gregory Porter approaches the subject a little differently by mixing hits, covers, novelties and duets with the living (Moby, Jamie Cullum, Jeff Goldblum, Renée Fleming, Laura Mvula...) as well as the dead (Ella Fitzgerald, Julie London, Buddy Holly, Nat King Cole...). An eclectic approach that reflects Porter's bubbly character, who is as comfortable in pure vocal jazz as he is in the softest soul or the most intimate gospel music. During this exclusive meeting, Gregory Porter explains his approach and reflects on his late success, his influences and his childhood.
