Today’s top-selling Blue Note Records artist, jazz sensation Gregory Porter has gathered accolades from NPR (“The next great male jazz singer”), The New York Times (“strong and sometimes experimental yet serenely unacademic, and mightily good”) and Mojo (“Possessed of massive vocal power offset by a rich tone and delicate control”), among others. The charismatic California is about to go BIG, and you can see him LIVE on the Jazz @ The Jacobs season finale! The concert will open with a set from Gilbert Castellanos and San Diego favorites Joshua White (piano) and Marshall Hawkins (bass).

The San Diego Union-Tribune recently ran an in-depth profile of Gregory Porter, exploring his career and San Diego roots.

Come early! Doors open at 7pm and we'll have hot jazz trio Besos de Coco performing plus special concession treats and craft cocktails for sale from Snake Oil Cocktail Company.
