The official opening night of the Miami Nice Jazz Festival.
SMDCAC is proud to announce the kick off concert of the Miami Nice Jazz Festival in partnership with the Nice Jazz Festival from the south of France.Grammy®-nominated soul jazz vocal sensation Gregory Porter is one of the most captivating blues baritone voices in music today. The New York Times wrote, “Gregory Porter has most of what you want in a male jazz singer, and maybe a thing or two you didn’t know you wanted.” Hailed by the Huffington Post as “…the brilliant new voice of jazz,” Porter speaks from the heart as the soulful spirit of the ’70s, epitomized by such artists as Lou Rawls and the Chi-Lites, echoes forth in his style.
“His artistry has drawn raves at every stop on his current tour.” — Billboard
