FREE: Gregory Porter – Pretty

American jazz singer, Gregory Porter, released his incredible album, Water, earlier this year on the Motema Music label to much acclaim. Now things have gone one step further; Water has just been nominated for a GRAMMY in the Best Jazz Vocal Album category! To help celebrate this fantastic achievement, the track Pretty (taken from Water) is currently available for FREE download via Bandcamp.

Gregory Porter is a contemporary jazz delight – his voice is as strong as it is thick and lush. It pours over the accompanying music like an alchemy of oak and silk. He possesses that gift of seeming to be able to deliver such an effortless sound in his singing that many could only dream of. Albeit layered with fantastic musicians, Water is truly an incredible debut album from such a young talent. Check this video, for his track Illusion, for another example…
