Gregory Porter sings Nat "King" Cole w/ Magik*Magik Orchestra

  • Davies Symphony Hall 201 Van Ness Avenue San Francisco, CA, 94102 United States (map)

Tickets $45-$135

Two-time GRAMMY-winner Gregory Porter sings the timeless songs of his greatest influence, Nat “King” Cole, in fresh arrangements by GRAMMY winner Vince Mendoza, re-creating the orchestral setting of Porter’s latest Blue Note album Nat “King” Cole & Me, accompanied by the Bay Area’s own Magik*Magik Orchestra under the direction of Mendoza himself. On the album, and for this exclusive evening, “Porter distills the wide-screen cinematic romance of the Forties, Fifties and Sixties, mantling his celebrated, honeyed baritone in glistening updrafts of strings, horns and woodwinds.” (Rolling Stone)

A jazz singer of thrilling presence, a booming baritone with a gift for earthy refinement and soaring uplift.
