GREGORY PORTER TO APPEAR ON COLBERT NOV. 21 & THE TODAY SHOW DEC. 13

November 21 2017

Gregory Porter is set to make two upcoming U.S. TV appearances in support of his stunning new Blue Note album Nat King Cole & Me. The two-time GRAMMY-winning vocalist will be appearing tonight (November 21) on CBS Late Show With Stephen Colbert performing a medley of two Nat “King” Cole favorites: “Mona Lisa” and “L-O-V-E.” Porter will also be performing Cole’s chestnut “The Christmas Song” when he makes his debut on NBC The Today Show on December 13.

See what the critics are saying about Nat King Cole & Me:

A loving tribute recorded with the London Studio Orchestra, in splendiferous arrangements by Vince Mendoza... Porter gives us precise, persuasive and courtly renditions of the songs you'd most expect to see on an essential Cole playlist... Porter exudes charm and encouragement...”—NPR Music

The jazz singer to beat these days in a man with a vast, noble voice and a way of winning your trust in a matter of seconds.”—New York Times

The most impressive new voice in jazz… That Porter and Cole are kindred spirits is undeniable: both warm, enthralling baritones; both blessed with tremendous, infectious charm… All of the performances are distinctively magical.”—JazzTimes
