Audio: Mini-Portrait- Gregory Porter

Some while ago I saw an nice documentary about the role of music in the US civil rights movement in the 60´s. Among others they interviewed a singer who also did a live performance only accompanied by a contrabassist: Gregory Porter. The live version of the track just blew me away. I researched the guy and found out that he is allready pretty famous. He even got a grammy nomination for his 2010 record "water".
So, I forgot about it and now got remindet by Opolo, who added a kick and bass to the song and made it into a "clubtrack". less is more. 

the remix:   Gregory Porter - 1960 What? (opolopo kick & bass rerub) by opolopo
