SharePrint Gregory Porter with Orchestra: Marshall Artists Series

December 04, 2018

Huntington, Cabell


Soulful jazz singer-songwriter Gregory Porter kicks off the holiday season by paying tribute to one of the all-time greats. Porter’s “thrilling presence” (New York Times) has won over audiences and Grammy voters, and now he’ll fill the theater with selections from Nat King Cole & Me, his most recent album. He’ll also treat the audience to some of his holiday favorites.

For the two-time Grammy-winning vocalist, the influence of Nat King Cole on his life and music runs deep, reaching back to his earliest childhood memories. After his role in the Tony-nominated musical “It Ain’t Nothin’ But the Blues” — but before rising to international acclaim in his solo career thanks to his majestic baritone and invigorating concerts — Porter expressed his deep appreciation for Cole in a semi-autobiographical musical, Nat King Cole & Me. That musical underpins Porter’s third Blue Note Record’s release, Nat King Cole & Me, the follow-up to his Grammy Award-winning albums Liquid Spirit and Take Me to the Alley.
