His arrival in 2013 on Blue Note record label with the impressive Liquid Spirit has seen him emerge as one of the brilliant voices in soul'n'jazz over the last few years. Gregory Porter has an especially soulful vocal range, far richer and more complex than those of his colleagues. Jazz, soul, gospel, blues, the Californian knows every corner of Great Black Music, but it is his ability for fusion that truly sets him apart. He is no simple 'heir' to Donny Hathaway like others have tried to be. With Take Me To The Alley, which is also released on Blue Note, Porter once again transcends genres. The new record also shows that, far from having been fatal, success allowed him to mature both as a person and artistically. The singer has chosen to leave the euphoria of Brooklyn with his wife and son to return to Bakersfield in California to be closer to his siblings. On Take Me To The Alley, Gregory Porter is supported by the core of his group. Pianist and musical director Chip Crawford, bassist Aaron James, drummer Emmanuel Harrold, alto saxophonist Yosuke Sato and tenor saxophonist Tivon Pennicott offer him a royal backing, and the album is an emotive experience from start to finish Note that Take Me To The Alley also welcomes guests such as singer Alicia Olatuja, trumpeter Keyon Harrold and organist Ondrel Pivec.

The Stylish Henry Mancini

Sophistication, humour, sensitivity… These are the words that often come to mind when describing Henry Mancini’s music. 23 years after his death, he is still seen as a major and influential pop composer. No doubt because, in addition to his glossy and light works for which he is renowned (notably Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Pink Panther), he also knew how to display the complexity of his musical language in more tormented compositions.

The New British Jazz Scene in 10 Albums

Hard bop, hip hop, free jazz, groove, electro, calypso, experimental or Caribbean: the key players of the new British jazz scene are open to everything. They know their classics like the back of their hands though they certainly don’t hold back from exploring all kinds of genres, making for a wonderfully eclectic sound. Here we look back over ten essential albums.

Peter Thomas in Orbit

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: his name is Peter Thomas! His eccentric film music left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s and since the 90s he has often been cited and sampled by young pop groups. The cult composer passed away on May 17th, 2020. We met him three years earlier, on the dawn of his 92nd birthday.
