About this deal

We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. 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".

We also sell coffee-making equipment to help perfect your brew, and gift sets to treat a special someone. This is firmly in the mould of Water and Be Good and it sounds very much like those abums - with the same all acoustic, small Jazz group feel. Alongside our coffee beans, we can also supply your business with commercial machinery and also provide machines installation, service, repair and water filters. Musicianship is excellent throughout, but I would like to have heard more improvisation and real Jazz - more of a live gig feel. The Grammy award winning Jazz vocalist is probably one of the coolest people walking the planet with his incredible presence and god given voice.While the whole may not have the impact of the previous two albums, it's still a huge pleasure to have new material from Gregory Porter and further chances to hear that wonderful voice.

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. Gregory reaches inside your mind with an honesty that is rare with so many over-produced albums these days. Whether you’d like to enquire about a product, claim a free sample , or simply have a chat, please get in touch below! Firstly the quality of the recording seems excellent to me, close your eyes and you can almost see the band around Gregory Porter. From tempo tracks (Liquid Spirit) to quiet ballads (When Love Was King) the sound was deep and engaging.But now that he is recording for the art form's marquis label, Porter has the chance to change the art, to enrich the audience, to sing from a higher mountaintop. 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.

After two solid albums on Motema, both of which earned Grammy nominations, Gregory Porter made his Blue Note debut with Liquid Spirit in 2013. 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.

The strength of Liquid Spirit lies in Porter's songs, based upon personal experiences with a relatable and emotional immediacy.

Every detail in the bass, cymbal etc is presented and every hammer strike in the piano carries a meaningful emotion.Gregory Porter has been taken up by radio stations like Jazz FM and this material is more radio-friendly, with the vocals clearly to the fore. We are happy to share our knowledge and passion with you, providing expertise and support for your new or evolving business. The material is again mostly original compositions, with a couple of Jazz standards and the old favourite : "The In Crowd" which has been covered by many people, but here receives a suitably Jazzy treatment. Marking the 10th anniversary of the album, Blue Note presents a special vinyl edition bringing together the original album on 2LP and a disc of bonus tracks and remixes, with 5 tracks available on vinyl for the first time.
