GREGORY PORTER

In 2010, Gregory Porter's album, "Water," created strong buzz about the jazz-soul fusion singer-songwriter and earned the rare feat for a debut CD of a Grammy nod. His follow-up, "Be Good," turned that murmur into a roar (and won a second nom from the Academy), and his fans anxiously anticipate his third LP, "Liquid Spirit."
