The Long Center is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit dedicated to broadening the appreciation and enhancing the enjoyment of the cultural arts.
The Long Center presents Gregory Porter: Nat “King” Cole & Me, Wednesday, June 20 in Dell Hall.
For Gregory Porter, the influence of Nat “King” Cole on his life and music runs deep, a through-line that reaches back into some of his earliest childhood memories, and culminates in the release of the two-time GRAMMY-winning vocalist’s stunning fifth studio album Nat “King” Cole & Me, a heartfelt tribute to the legendary singer pianist, and Capitol recording artist. “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.
Nat “King” Cole & Me is the follow-up to Porter’s GRAMMY-winning albums Liquid Spirit (2013) and Take Me to the Alley (2016), which established Porter as his generation’s most soulful jazz singer-songwriter.
- As a special offer for fans attending Gregory Porter’s upcoming tour, a digital download of his forthcoming album, Nat “King” Cole & Me (available October 27), is included with every ticket!
