Gregory Porter took home the 2014 Grammy for best jazz vocal album with his Liquid Spirit LP, recorded on Blue Note Records. Porter was encouraged to pursue singing by his mother, after an injury stymied a promising football career. He didn't record his first album until he was 39, but has had a strong musical career ever since. Trevor Reekie talks with Gregory Porter.
