Gregory Porter Performs "Liquid Spirit" Live On The Tonight Show

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

LA native Gregory Porter stopped through The Tonight Show set to take the audience to church, performing the self-titled single from his newly released Liquid Spirit LP, the follow up to 2012's Be Good. No doubt the son of a minister, Porter's soul clap spelled the audience in a Otis Redding goes to N'awlins kind of way. The gritty sweetness of Porter's baritone is both earnest and fitting for a track ensconced in big swinging horns and a raucous baby grand and upright bass rhythm section. Blue Note's newest member to the roster bears the tidings of the greats, blending ragtime swing sentiments with organic R&B  flavors. Catch LA's soulful son below on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno for a heavy dose of Southern hospitality.
