Home Page for February 2014
Published on February 1, 2014
Our drawing for February is for six of the new audiophile vinyl pressings of jazz vocalist Gregory Porter’s 2010 album Water. (His new album Liquid Spirit just won the GRAMMY for Best Jazz Vocal Album of the Year.) The 11 songs are based on themes of love and protest. He’s been said to be stylistically similar to the late Gregory Hines, with phrasing like Stevie Wonder, enunciation like Kurt Elling, and using techniques of singers like Jimmy Witherspoon and Joe Williams. All you need to do (besides owning a turntable system) is to register on our simple form this month; we will not share your email with anyone. The six lucky winners will be announced on our Editorial Page next month and you’ll find more details there this month.
