Gregory Porter will host a festive special for BBC2.
He will be joined by guests: singer-songwriter Corinne Bailey Rae; 24-year-old musical phenomenon Jacob Collier; legendary British saxophonist Courtney Pine; and one of the UK’s best loved jazz singers Clare Teal.
Featuring standards from the Great American Songbook, together with a carol or two, and some of Gregory’s personal favourites, performances include ‘Merry Christmas Baby’, ‘Silent Night’, ‘Take me to the Alley’ and ‘The Christmas Song’. Filmed in an intimate ‘jazz club’ setting in Cardiff Bay, Merry Christmas Baby has all the ingredients of a joyful winter warmer – the perfect offering for a mellow Christmas night.
Almost time for #MerryChristmasBaby ft. @CorinneBRae @jacobcollier @clareteal @CourtneyPine1! Tune in at 9.15pm on @BBCTwo ??? pic.twitter.com/h1JbKTKcve
