Great Voices of Harlem feat. Mansur Scott & Mavis Swan Poole
Great Voices of Harlem
Gregory Porter – Donald Smith – Mansur Scott
feat. Paul Zauner’s Blue Brass
Grammy®-winner GREGORY PORTER not only earns both acknowledgements and awards with his current album success all over Europe, like the “Echo” in Germany, but now conquers the charts with the documentation of his performances with the "GREAT VOICES OF HARLEM" that have helped him to break through. A "once-in-a-lifetime" recording. Already nominated "CD of the Week" in NDR and WDR in Germany. Everyone attending these early appearances in Europe just 2 - 3 years ago, among others like the Elb Jazz Festival in Hamburg, the Jazz Festival Passau or the Vienna Jazz Festival, has become earwitness at the birth of a world-star. In a similar way that could also happen to young singer Mavis "Swan" Poole, now touring with the "GREAT VOICES OF HARLEM" together with MANSUR SCOTT, filling European stages with “Harlem Soul” at selected dates in 2014. The new CD of the "GREAT VOICES OF HARLEM" earns enthusiastic reviews and preserves a touch of the discovery of a "magic moment". GREGORY PORTER's "Moanin'" is already rotating on many European stations, in France the track already peaked at # 1 on the jazz radio charts.
