Gregory Porter - Nat King Cole & Me (Deluxe Edition)
2017 release. Two-time Grammy-winning vocalist Gregory Porter's third Blue Note album, Nat King Cole & Me, is a heartfelt tribute to his idol, the legendary singer, pianist and Capitol recording artist Nat King Cole. With the help of six-time Grammy-winning arranger Vince Mendoza, the London Studio Orchestra, a core band featuring pianist Christian Sands, bassist Reuben Rogers, and drummer Ulysses Owens, and special guest trumpeter Terence Blanchard on two tracks, Porter revisits some of Cole s most cherished classics such as 'Mona Lisa', 'L-O-V-E', 'Nature Boy' and 'The Christmas Song'. Porter won the Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Album in 2014 for Liquid Spirit and in 2017 for Take Me to the Alley.
