Gary Porter

Following on from his critically acclaimed album ‘Can’t Keep Still’, which gained his band play listing on BBC Radio Two, Gary has strived to develop his music further with his new album by engaging high class musicianship for the recording on these new songs. Lisa Mills who is gaining massive popularity within the UK and is in as much demand on the live circuit as she is back in her home state of Alabama added her superb vocals to several tracks.

Fresh from his involvement on the Roger Daltry / Wilko Johnson hit album ‘Going Back Home’ Steve West Weston added his harmonica to the track ‘’Steamtrain Blues’. The brass section comprised two of the country’s finest players in Graeme Turner ( Steve Marriott, Robert Plant, The Equals amongst many more ) and Lee Badau from ‘The James Hunter Six’.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
