GREGORY PORTER RELEASES “L-O-V-E” FROM HIS NEW ALBUM "NAT KING COLE & ME"
September 22 2017
2-time GRAMMY-winning vocalist Gregory Porter has released “L-O-V-E,” the exuberant 2nd single from his forthcoming tribute album Nat King Cole & Me, which is due out October 27 on Blue Note Records. The track features Porter’s caressing vocals and a brilliant trumpet solo by Terence Blanchard, backed by a spry rhythm section of pianist Christian Sands, bassist Reuben Rogers, and drummer Ulysses Owens. The song was written by Milt Gabler and Bert Kampfert and was featured as the title track of Cole’s 1965 album on Capitol Records.
Porter will be on tour in the U.S. in November and December, including concerts in Seattle, San Diego, Denver, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, Madison, Memphis, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Additional 2018 tour dates will be announced shortly.
