Gregory Porter

When the Montreux Jazz Club welcomed him in 2013, the Californian crooner was still a promising young jazz singer, brought to light at the age of forty by two prestigious albums: Water and Be Good. With the aura of royalty and great stylishness invariably accentuated with a cap pulled tight down to his eyebrows, this former hope of American Football has charmed his audience summoning to the Vaud Riviera the spirit of Nat “King” Cole – one of his role models. After winning a Grammy Award for Liquid Liquid in 2018, and making his debut as an actor on Broadway, he returns to the Festival to celebrate the universal virtues of bluesy ballads and muffled acrobatics. For the first time, he has been invited to take the stage at the Auditorium Stravinski, where he will present in style his seventh album All Rise. A radiant night lies ahead.
