Jazz at Karpedammen: Gregory Porter

Gregory Porter has established a close and strong relationship with the festival and Oslo over recent years. He played for a packed Opera audience at Oslo Jazz Festival’s opening concert in 2015 and the next year he played a sell-out gig at Cosmopolite. He was marketed in 2015 as a new Grammy winner, and has in fact just landed another Grammy award in 2017! His soulful jazz has considerable cross-over appeal, and he has made the hit charts both with his own music and his collaboration with the British house duo Disclosure.
