An artist whose music is at once timeless yet utterly of its time, Gregory Porter solidifies his standing as his generation’s most soulful jazz singer-songwriter with the May 6 release of Take Me to the Alley, the much-anticipated follow-up to his million-selling Grammy-winning 2013 Blue Note debut Liquid Spirit. The album pre-order has launched today along with the release of two singles—“Holding On” and “Don’t Lose Your Steam”—which fans will receive instantly when pre-ordering a download of the album.

A pleasant compilation of Oscar Peterson tracks with Ed Thigpen, Louis Hayes, Bobby Durham, and others sitting in, all anchored by Peterson's classic version of "Fly Me to the Moon," originally written by Bart Howard in 1954.
In 2006, the Berman Brothers (Frank & Christian) created and produced the Album “Rhythms del Mundo”, a non-profit collaborative effort which fused an all-star cast of Cuban musicians including Ibrahim Ferrer and Omara Portuondo of the Buena Vista Social Club. The new album released on the occasion of the 2016 Olympics in Brazil. Just as “Rhythms del Mundo” Cuba, it contains rearranged pop hits, but this time in a Brazilian Samba and Bossa Nova sound garment. In order to achieve the authenticity that also distinguished “Rhythms del Mundo: Cuba, the Berman Brothers recorded with Brazilian musicians, as well as internationally popular pop-voices.
