2013 album from the Jazz vocalist. Liquid Spirit marks Gregory Porter's Blue Note Records debut, which arrives on the heels of two critically acclaimed indie label albums that quickly propelled Porter to the upper echelon of contemporary male Jazz singers and earned him two Grammy nominations. Don Was, President of Blue Note, encouraged Porter to stay true to his artistic vision. ''I firmly consider myself a Jazz singer but I enjoy Blues, Southern Soul, and Gospel,'' Porter says, ''Those elements make their way inside my music. And I've always heard them in Jazz.''
