An amazing song by US Soul legend Gregory Porter and he was joined by US Hollywood actor Jeff Goldblum to perform his new single Mona Lisa. I openly admit that though I’ve only heard of Gregory on an on/off basis this is the first time I’ve fully listened to a session of his. Seriously he’s incredible and just had an superb vocal and his singing is just soothing and melodic. I was very surprised by Jeff Goldblum though as I had no idea he could play an instrument, but seriously the guy was brilliant. Gregory new album Nat King Cole & Me. On another note though I’m very impressed with some of the musical sounds coming from the U.S right now.
Currently watching American artist Gregory Porter sing his latest single Holding On, from his new album Take Me To The Alley, on The Graham Norton Show on BBC1 at the moment, and it’s actually quite good. A nice mixture of soul and jazz. It’s got a smoothing, soulful intro and Gregory’s just got the right voice for this type of song. He’s a bit similar to soul legend Stevie Wonder. As an artist he’s got that amazing soothing voice that just gets you. And yes he was wearing that ironic hat of his, how long’s he been wearing that for now?
Also they showed a small clip as a tribute to late Carrie Fisher from when she was last on.
