“Massive vocal power offset by a rich tone and delicate control, his interpretations flit between jazz and soul.”—MOJO
Equal parts Bill Withers and Nat King Cole, Grammy Award-winning vocalist Gregory Porter can moan a soulful blues and dart through a playful, stomping jazz number with equal power. With a smooth and smoky baritone, Porter continues the traditions of soul and jazz artists of the past, but sets himself apart from mere revivalists with his exceptional songwriting. His insightful lyrics and stirring melodies are sincere, romantic, and deeply grooving. This enormous talent raised the roof at the 2013 Festival. With Chip Crawford piano, Emanuel Harrold drums, Aaron James bass, Tivon Pennicott sax.
A beloved fixture on the Vancouver jazz scene, pianist Bruno Hubert has played with Brad Turner, Jacyln Guillou, Seamus Blake, and scores of other jazz luminaries. Hubert brings huge personality and rare talent to entrancing standards and nimble, swinging post-bop. With James Meger bass, Andrew Millar drums.
