Gregory Porter Nat King Cole & Me

Nat King Cole & Me, which Gregory has recorded together with Vince Mendoza as conductor and London orchestra in May 2017 will be released by Blue Note /Universal. It´s a statement of Gregory´s most loved songs of his hero, the legendary pianist and singer Nat King Cole.

That's what Gregory himself is saying:

"This record is about musical healing and the source of my mother, gospel music and guess what - Nat King Cole."

It is a deeply personal tribute to Nat King Cole – the legendary crooner who ignited Gregory´s love of music.

Recorded at London´s AIR Studios, the 12-track album features some of Gregory´s favourite Nat King Cole tunes including ´Smile´, ´L-O-V-E´ and ´Nature Boy´. There is also a Nat-inspired arrangement of Gregory´s own song ´When Love Was King´, originally released on his million-selling hit album, ‘Liquid Spirit’.
