"Liquid Spirit" is the first album by Gregory Porter released by Blue Note music label. It's one big step forward compared to his previous works, its roots are still deeply jazz but Gregory Porter's natural inquisitiveness moves its boundaries well outside the box, picking from vintage soul, blues, gospel, filtering all features with timeless simplicity.
The arrangements are well dosed and balanced, embedded in tradition, never attempting to shift towards innovation.
Perhaps for a jazz purist listener "Liquid Spirit" will not account for anything new but the beauty of its tracks is indeed a gust of good taste in music. This record will bring calm, a distinct peace of mind, and lots of soulfulness.
