About this deal

Since our conception Liquid Spirit Coffee Roasters has been committed to sourcing and supplying products that we know our clients will love. The sound is more Blues-Soul than Jazz which is where the problem possibly lies with the purists, but the superb “stripped back acoustic” sound makes this a very intimate listen. Now, Saxes and Trumpet are relegated to more of a supporting role as horn section, rather than featured soloists, as they were on tracks like "Work Song". Berlin based enigma Claptone has just announced to the world that a new remix of Gregory Porter is coming out soon. This is still evident to some extent and Chip Crawford, as main collaborator and pianist is excellent throughout - whether as accompanist or soloist.

The lyrics are heart-on-sleeve, and occasionally odd, but Porter's rich baritone oozes confidence and brings each syllable life". Even if you're a dance aficionado you will have heard this track thanks to the excellent house reworking by Claptone which is also included on this Deluxe Edition. After two solid albums on Motema, both of which earned Grammy nominations, Gregory Porter made his Blue Note debut with Liquid Spirit in 2013. Every detail in the bass, cymbal etc is presented and every hammer strike in the piano carries a meaningful emotion.Do yourself a favour, if you're feeling stressed, pour yourself a drink of your choosing and put this album on. Hailed by public and critics alike, Liquid Spirit won the Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Album in 2014.

Mike Hobart of Financial Times wrote "Gregory Porter ’s largely self-penned major label debut is an artful and free-spirited blend of love songs, social commentary and reflections on life. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. While the whole may not have the impact of the previous two albums, it's still a huge pleasure to have new material from Gregory Porter and further chances to hear that wonderful voice.It won the best 2014 Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Album, and reached top 10 in Denmark, Germany, Netherlands and the UK. Platinum in the UK and Germany, gold in France, the Netherlands and Austria, the album has sold over a million copies worldwide. A wide range of music styles can be found on this album - jazz, gospel, ballad, blues, soul - which help paint a pallet of images and textures for the listener.

We offer a range of machines in multiple configurations, and we’ll work closely with you to find the perfect fit for your business. In fact this could be easier listening for anybody new to Gregory Porter, than the two previous albums. All songs written by Gregory Porter, and arranged by Porter, Chip Crawford and Kamau Kenyatta, except where noted. Musicianship is excellent throughout, but I would like to have heard more improvisation and real Jazz - more of a live gig feel.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. The strength of Liquid Spirit lies in Porter's songs, based upon personal experiences with a relatable and emotional immediacy.
