Nat King Cole has been a guiding light in the life of Gregory Porter. For that reason, it was hardly surprising that the artist paid a vibrant tribute to him with the 2017 album Nat King Cole & Me. When he was only five, his mother was already comparing his singing style to that of the jazz legend. In 2004, six years before releasing his first record, Gregory Porter even decided to stage his relationship with Nat King Cole in a largely autobiographical musical. Since then, his baritone vocals have conquered the universe of jazz and beyond, and earned him a reputation as sweet and humble. This Californian is returning to Montreux five years after a stunning first concert here. In the meantime, his velvet voice has won him two Grammy Awards for the brilliant albums Liquid Spirit and Take Me To The Alley.
