OSBORNE, JORDAN (27 November 2015). "Album review: Gregory Porter – Liquid Spirit – Special Edition Porter's magnificent vocals overflow with soul Gregory Porter ― Liquid Spirit". The Galleon . Retrieved 3 July 2018.

Instantly recognisable thanks to his trademark Kangol flat cap Gregory has sent critics scurrying for superlatives with many seeing him as heir apparent to a rich tradition of soul greats including Bill Withers, Donny Hathaway and even Nat King Cole. In his own mind, he seeks to nourish with sound and he succeeds. His wish is well stated. “I’m trying to come honestly, really trying to be unpretentious. I’m trying to be appealing, even as a jazz artist, to the non-jazz head. Trying to speak to them as well. I want to speak to the human heart.” The album entered the US Billboard 200 at No. 192 with around 3,000 copies sold, and peaked at No. 187 on the chart. [15] It peaked at No. 2 on Jazz Albums. [16] The album has sold 43,000 copies in the US as of April 2016. [17] Porter has performed at numerous festivals around the world, gracing the famous Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury. During 2022, he performed for Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations. Contemporaries and peers concur on this vibrant talent. Saxophonist David Murray featured Gregory on his album Be My Monster Loveand the great Anita Wilson featured him on her Motown Christmas. Recommencing with the water analogy that characterized his debut disc, Porter saw Liquid Spirit as a logical progression in his burgeoning discography as it touched on some of the same themes, particularly the highs and lows of romance, his childhood, and socio-political observations. The strength of Liquid Spirit lies in Porter’s songs, based upon personal experiences with a relatable and emotional immediacy. Even more, his hooky melodies penetrate instantly.a b Fordham, John (September 5, 2013). "Gregory Porter: Liquid Spirit – review". The Guardian .

Apple Inc. January 2013 . Retrieved April 29, 2016. Follow-up disc Be Good (2012) nailed it again with the modern classic “On My Way To Harlem” conjuring up images of Duke Ellington while Chip Crawford and the guys set up the mood. The sweet proposal of “Real Good Hands” is another honey that calls to mind the legends of sophisticated seventies soul. The intriguing “Bling Bling” is a scorcher with its scat break and high-energy arrangement and Gregory’s take on Nat Adderley’s “Work Song” brings the house down. This really is like luxuriating in classic-era Blue Note but with a defiantly contemporary twist.Use italics (lyric) and bold (lyric) to distinguish between different vocalists in the same song part Incredible vinyl. Music, mastering, sound, pressing are all top quality. This is my go to vinyl when I show someone how good it can be, Liquid Spirit was recorded at Sear Sound, keeping it on a New York tip, and mixed at The Grateful Shed. Blue Note regular Brian Bacchus provides the stellar production. This is not just a disc worth discovering; it’s one to be cherished. Lindsay, Bruce (4 September 2013).
