Amoeba Review

09/15/2013

As tempting as it is to call this record a "throwback" in the shadow of the contemporary soul revival sweeping the musical zeitgeist, Gregory Porter's sense of nostalgia seems no more overbearing or "retro" than the scientifically undeniable existence of the past and the basic human recognition of that existence that follows. What I mean to say is that this is a kind of music that, if it is your cup of tea, never left and will not go anywhere. What I mean to say is that this music is timeless. Often called "the heir to Nat King Cole," there's also a healthy dose of gospel, Bill Withers, and even a little Bernie Taupin in Porter's often dense but always fluidly moving lyrical turns. The instrumentation is standard for a vocal jazz combo, anchored by an upright bass, a piano, and a drummer, with visitation from horns throughout. Some sneaky 16th notes might have you thinking about some of the elegantly frenetic combos that made Nina Simone's groups so vital. An incredibly high level of pop jazz craftsmanship, highly recommended.
