Review: ‘Liquid Spirit’ by Gregory Porter

It was after watching his phenomenal performance at this year’s Glastonbury that I decided to buy Gregory Porter’s latest album, Liquid Spirit.

As well as promising laid-back tracks such as the powerful Water Under Bridges and Hey Laura, the album also contains smooth soul when it comes to Liquid Spirit and Musical Genocide.

However, aside from Lonesome Lover and The “In” Crowd promising fast-paced jazz, most of the album contains more traditional, slower swing music. Whilst it’s not a bad thing as such, it would have been nice to have seen a better balance between the two style. Nevertheless, Gregory Porter’s talented vocals are great to listen to regardless.

With Gregory’s unique brand of soul alongside groovy jazz solos, Liquid Spirit is a colourful and vibrant album which is a calming album to listen to.
