About this deal

Hailed by public and critics alike, Liquid Spirit won the Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Album in 2014 and has sold over a million copies worldwide.

John Fordham of The Guardian stated 'It's a better balanced Porter album than formerly, and as classily polished and confident as is usual from Blue Note. Those of you into Blue Note jazz may have noticed that original recording engineer Rudy Van Gelder has been painstakingly digitally remastering a lot of the back catalogue to get the best from CD format. From tempo tracks (Liquid Spirit) to quiet ballads (When Love Was King) the sound was deep and engaging.Recommencing with the water analogy that characterized his debut disc, Porter saw Liquid Spirit as a logical progression in his burgeoning discography as it touched on some of the same themes, particularly the highs and lows of romance, his childhood, and socio-political observations. In this arrangement there’s a lead voice some of the time but you can easily adapt it for a group of singers if you prefer. The Grammy award winning Jazz vocalist is probably one of the coolest people walking the planet with his incredible presence and god given voice. All songs written by Gregory Porter, and arranged by Porter, Chip Crawford and Kamau Kenyatta, except where noted.

Of course, he has such an amazing voice that this is all justified - but what made him stand out from the crowd before, was the Jazz musicianship and sophistication.The lyrics are heart-on-sleeve, and occasionally odd, but Porter's rich baritone oozes confidence and brings each syllable life". However, this album sees a move away to more and shorter tracks - mostly around 3-4 minutes, with less of the Jazz improvisation and solos we had on the previous two albums. Do yourself a favour, if you're feeling stressed, pour yourself a drink of your choosing and put this album on. We are happy to share our knowledge and passion with you, providing expertise and support for your new or evolving business. This is still evident to some extent and Chip Crawford, as main collaborator and pianist is excellent throughout - whether as accompanist or soloist.

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. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.Hailed by public and critics alike, Liquid Spirit won the Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Album in 2014. Alongside our coffee beans, we can also supply your business with commercial machinery and also provide machines installation, service, repair and water filters. The material is again mostly original compositions, with a couple of Jazz standards and the old favourite : "The In Crowd" which has been covered by many people, but here receives a suitably Jazzy treatment.
