A two-time GRAMMY-winner and seven-time nominee, Gregory Porter has undoubtedly become jazz’s most celebrated male vocalist, “a jazz singer of thrilling presence, a booming baritone with a gift for earthy refinement and soaring uplift” (The New York Times). He returns to the Paramount with his terrific band and music from his 2020 Blue Note album, All Rise, and his 2021 favorites collection, Still Rising.

After the success of his 2010 debut Water and follow-up Be Good, Porter broke through to mainstream stardom with his Blue Note debut Liquid Spirit, winning the 2013 GRAMMY for Best Jazz Vocal Album. He repeated the GRAMMY and chart success of Liquid Spirit with 2016’s Take Me to the Alley, and his 2017 session, Nat “King” Cole & Me, was a personal tribute to his greatest influence.

With All Rise, Porter brings a fresh set of original material steeped in love and protest, recorded in London with an eight-piece band and 10-member choir.

Raised in the hardscrabble city of Bakersfield, the budding vocalist grew up with seven siblings who all sang and worked in their mother’s skid row mission. Growing up around rollicking tent revivals offered ideal training for a revue tracing the history of the blues, and he got the gig. Porter brings the same soul-stirring authority to jazz settings, revealing powerful truths with heart and grace.
