Gregory Porter Announces His Carnegie Hall Debut; New Album "Nat King Cole & Me" Out Now!

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) 2-time GRAMMY-winning vocalist Gregory Porter has released his stunning third Blue Note album, Nat King Cole & Me, a heartfelt dedication to his idol, the legendary singer and pianist Nat King Cole that finds Porter revisiting some of Cole's most cherished classics such as "Smile," "L-O-V-E," "Mona Lisa," "Nature Boy," and "The Christmas Song." The New York Times wrote that "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." NPR Music described the album as "a loving tribute recorded with the London Studio Orchestra, in splendiferous arrangements by Vince Mendoza," adding that "Porter exudes charm and encouragement."

Porter's amiable charm will be on full display when he makes his Carnegie Hall debut on February 14, 2018, gracing the venerable New York City venue's legendary Stern Auditorium Perelman Stage for his beloved, annual Valentine's Day concert. Tickets go on sale here this Friday, November 3 at 11:00am ET. Porter kicks off his Fall U.S. tour tomorrow in Seattle, with upcoming concerts in San Diego, Denver, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, Madison, Memphis, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.
