sage gateshead - gregory porter

Last week we were lucky enough to see singer/songwriter Gregory Porter at the Sage Gateshead.
We really enjoyed this concert and although in some parts it was a little too jazzy for me there was enough of a mixture of jazz, gospel, soul, blues and R&B to make it accessible for even the most anti-jazzer.  

Gregory's rich baritone voice was backed by a band consisting of a pianist, drummer, double bass player and the alto saxophonist, Yosuke Sato, who delivered some particularly fabulous solo spots. 

If you've not listened to Mr Porter before - although you've probably heard him on the radio - have a look at this You Tube video and enjoy...and just in case you were wondering, he always wears a Kangol Summer Spitfire hat, 'his jazz hat', following skin surgery.
