Grammy winning singer Gregory Porter has released his version of the Nat King Cole classic tune “L.O.V.E.” The song comes from Porter’s upcoming tribute album, Nat King Cole & Me, which features songs made famous by the 50’s jazz crooner.
“He was one of a kind. He left such great music – such beautiful things to listen to that you can’t help but be influenced by that extraordinary timbre, style, and ultimate cool,” Porter enthuses. “It’s only natural that I go to the root of my inspiration and where I come from. And that root would be my mother and gospel music and Nat King Cole,” said Porter to JazzCorner.com
Nat King Cole & Me debuts on October 27!
