Grammy-winning singing sensation Gregory Porter – one of the most successful jazz artists of his generation – is back with a new album, ‘Nat King Cole & Me’  It is a deeply personal tribute to Nat King Cole – the legendary crooner who ignited Gregory’s love of music. “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,” he says.

Here is your chance to to experience Gregory Porter with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, playing songs from his new release Nat King Cole & Me

The new album marks the first time Gregory has recorded with a full 70-piece orchestra, under the baton of six-time Grammy-winning conductor and arranger Vince Mendoza. Gregory will also be embarking on a UK tour in April next year, including two nights at the Royal Albert Hall where he’ll be joined by an orchestra.
