Two-time Grammy winner Gregory Porter sings the timeless songs of his greatest influence, Nat “King” Cole, in fresh arrangements by fellow Grammy winner Vince Mendoza that recreate the orchestral setting of Porter’s latest Blue Note album Nat “King” Cole & Me. Accompanying Porter will be conductor Mike Galisatus, leading a swingin' jazz orchestra of Bay Area musicians. On the album, and for this special holiday 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)
