"Porter’s voice is a marvel: a warm, assured tenor with precise, impeccable intonation, completely at home in classy originals that – like all good jazz – seem to bathe in timeless familiarity."
- Daniel Spicer, BBC Music

"If Water heralded the arrival of the next big name in vocal jazz, then Be Good makes it clear that Porter still has plenty to say. Be Good is beyond great and he's here to stay."
- Dan Bilawsky, All About Jazz

"Porter has made the best vocal album for an age... The rich soulful voice is what you notice first... but his original songs full of social conscience and sentiment are enhanced by beautifully unplayed production and musicianship."
- Phil Johnson, The Independent

Jazz vocal superstar Gregory Porter arrived on the scene with his 2010 Water, successfully blowing his competition out of it. His follow up release Be Good continues to establish him as one of the most important singers in the contemporary jazz milieu - his nine gorgeous original compositions ooze with a certain familiarity yet gleam with a distinct forward-looking sensibility. Rhythm section players Chip Crawford, Aaron James and Emanuel Harrold accompany Porter with a sparse sensitivity that perfectly sustains his rich baritone, highlighting his impressive improvisations and vocal stylings.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
