By M. Dowden HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 15 May 2015
Format: Audio CD
Ah, Gregory Porter, the man with a voice like chocolate dribbling over caramel gives us here the deluxe edition of his album Liquid Spirit. The original album was critically acclaimed but here we are given an extra four tracks with guest stars including Laura Mvula, Jamie Callum and Ben L’Oncle Soul as well as a five track DVD featuring Porter on stage with the Metropole Orksest, conducted by Jules Buckley.

As a singer and songwriter when Porter sings we all sit up to attention waiting to hear that voice of his ooze out, and it always does with charm, warmth, full of soul and a certain amount of hip coolness, this is a man who definitely knows how to work his mojo.

This album is possibly more accessible to everyone rather than those who are into just Jazz. Of course Jazz features here but also there are elements of Gospel, Soul, Blues and Rhythm and Blues which makes this a wonderful album to listen to. Porter’s rich baritone vocals command attention and are just so smooth as he sings his way through all the pieces here. The musical accompaniments, and vocal ones by guest stars also work together well making this a slick and highly enjoyable album that is easy on the ears and a pleasure to listen to.

It is worth watching the DVD here, especially as we have the wonderful piece Hoochie Coochie Man, which is a joy to listen to at any time. Really you can’t go wrong with this deluxe edition.

To match his first two albums, `Water' &' Be Good,' was perhaps asking a bit too much - a bridge too far?
Whilst this is a fine effort, for me, it's very good, rather than outstanding, as the aforementioned two clearly are. This album lacks the vibrancy and perhaps unsurprisingly the originality of those initial albums. There are 14 tracks, of which GP wrote 11. The albums consist of some typical Porter quality and also several ballads, plus a couple of covers; overall the music is a bit more down tempo than the previous offerings. The band of Chip on tinkling piano and Yosuke on Sax, are complemented with trumpet and Hammond organ on a couple of tracks which adds nicely to the album. `Hey Laura' has `Lion Song' traits and `Lonesome Lover' has a lovely jazzy backdrop .
My personal favourites are `No Love Dying,' which for me is up there with any of his best songs. It was released as a single in the USA. `Liquid Spirit' is typical of the up tempo rhythms of those initial albums, as is `Free.'
`Musical Genocide' is typical of GP's originality, being almost his own musical CV, it's another top track. 'When Love was King' was written and inspired after the birth of his son, Demyan, and of course, `Free' thanks the sacrifices that his parents made for him. Gregory writes and sings from his heart and that is a very endearing feature of his music.
For the first time there may be one or two so -so songs on here, but let's face it, he has a voice to die for, so he gets away with it! After just 3 albums he has an absolutely awesome set list - is there a jazz vocalist out there that can match him?

Another good CD from Gregory Porter - some songs that I am sure will become catchy. My 10 year old loves Gregory Porter too - her verdict was good but more "slow" songs than previous albums.

"Liquid Spirit" is the marvelous third recording and first on Blue Note by Grammy-nominated singer, composer, actor, and leader Gregory Porter, who gives a masterful performance of 11 original songs and 3 standards, keeping up the momentum of his preceding recordings: Water and Be Good. Some singers only interpret the music of others, but Porter has the ability to uniquely see the world and then express his own viewpoints through potent lyrics that occur 'organically', a booming expressive baritone voice, and his musical group. He is accompanied by his long-time associates: Chip Crawford on piano, Aaron James on bass, Emanuel Harrold on drums, Tivon Pennicott on tenor sax, Yosuke Sato on alto sax, and Curtis Taylor on trumpet. When performing, Porter always wears his distinctive 2-piece Kangol hat and balaclava headgear.

The `best of the best' on this recording begins with the gospel-tinged "Liquid Water", which is driven along by hand-claps, grooving horns, James' bass figurations, and Chip Crawford's staccato piano funk. The powerful Max Roach-Abbey Lincoln gem "Lonesome Lover" is marvelous, pushed along in 4/4 swing with a 6/8 vamp with a hot Yosuke Sato alto solo. "Hey Laura" and "Brown Grass" are ballads that intensely lay out the story of troubled romances gone wrong. The very hip, bluesy "Free" and "Movin'" are autobiographical marvels showing the positive influence of family on Porter and show his backup group at its best. The engaging "now and forever' theme of "Wind Song" is propelled along nicely by Harrold's drums and Crawford's sparkling piano. The beautiful 'fairy tale'-like ballad "When Love Was King" is dedicated to Porter's new son and the world he wants to raise him in, getting a very emotional performance.

There are a fair number of reviews that say this album is not as good as previous ones, but for me this is an all time classic.

The sound is more Blues-Soul than Jazz which is where the problem possibly lies with the purists, but the superb “stripped back acoustic” sound makes this a very intimate listen. Close your eyes and on a decent system this guy is right there with his band a few feet in front of you, delivering a pitch and note perfect performance with nowhere to hide.

There are few albums where when you want to sit back with a glass of wine and unwind that you don’t end up reaching for the skip button for some of the tracks… but this is one of those rarities. Gregory reaches inside your mind with an honesty that is rare with so many over-produced albums these days.

So for me Gregory … lets have more of this… it’s unique and refreshing…and transcends your earlier mainstream jazz albums.
