The Monte-Carlo Jazz Festival: Gregory Porter
November 29 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm€85
Let’s (re)discover Gregory Porter and his new album “ All Rise” on November 29th at the Opera Garnier Monte-Carlo!
The young Californian rocked by the soul music of Marvin Gaye and the jazz of Nat King Cole made his Broadway debut in the musical ‘It ain’t nothin’ but the blues’ (1999). This success allowed him to stage his own musical Nat King Cole & Me in 2004. The Grammy Awards followed, evenings with Stevie Wonder and even concerts for the Queen of England… but Gregory Porter remains humble. According to the artist, his immense success is due to one theory: “My voice rocked me when I was a child, and I think the same goes for others who hear me sing. I’m trying to heal myself with these songs.” The sixth studio album, All Rise, marks a return to the original compositions of the baritone who adores sensitive lyrics, mixing jazz and soul, blues and gospel. The strings were recorded at Abbey Road studios and the heart of the All Rise album originates in two different places: Los Angeles at the mythical Capitol Studios and in a small cozy studio in the Saint-Germain-des-Pres district in Paris, a historic place in the literary and jazz sphere.
