Gregory Porter: In Studio

Gregory Porter (Amy Pearl/WNYC)

Jazz singer Gregory Porter looks like a linebacker – which makes sense, because that’s exactly what he used to be. Although a shoulder injury put an end to that career path, things have worked out pretty well for Porter--his 2010 recording debut, “Water,” earned him a Grammy nomination the following year. His sophomore effort is called “Be Good,” and he talks with guest host Christian McBride about the record and performs some of it live in our studio.

What a wonderful week of music and what a great host. I listen to soundcheck every day in Detroit through WDET 101.9 Wayne State University. I plan to see Gregory Porter when he come to Detroit and I'll send my sister his CD for her Birthday Thanks!
