He is a large, disarming man with one of the best-honed voices in jazz: two-time Grammy Award winner Gregory Porter is someone you don’t easily forget. He has an unrivalled capacity to use his melodious voice to turn every song into a vocal delight. This year marks the American’s sixth appearance at the North Sea Jazz Festival and he will be performing a tribute to his idol and greatest inspirer. On his 2017 release Nat King Cole & Me, Porter expressed his love for the timeless classics of his idol. And now, with ‘our’ Metropole Orkest led by arranger-conductor Vince Mendoza, Porter is presenting his musical tribute to the phenomenal jazz pianist, singer and composer live on stage. Groove to Nat King Cole’s world famous evergreens, beautifully sung by his contemporary counterpart.
