Gregory Porter - All Rise - cd -

Price per Unit (stuk): €19.95

While Porter’s 2017 release Nat King Cole & Me was mostly comprised of covers, All Rise is a reminder of his incredible songwriting ability, as his lyrics boast a depth to match his famous vocals. Phoenix is a powerful ode to both a lover and love itself and Porter is in fine flow as he effortlessly soars through the final chorus.

On Mister Holland, he addresses racial inequality, singing from the viewpoint of a black teenager dating a white girl. Porter has employed a stellar cast of supporting musicians too, with trumpet players, a pianist and horn sections getting their moments in the spotlight, while the gospel-inspired Revival Song features a 10-strong choir.

The album had been due earlier this year but was delayed due to the pandemic. While it’s still glorious to have now, it’s a shame the label didn’t stick to the plan — this soulful and uplifting collection would have been a much-needed midlockdown tonic.
