Fine performance... The Metropole Orchestra is a a finejazz unit. I'd argue Porter ismmore of a soul singer, more Marvin Gaye than Johnny Hartman. Picking nits, though, he does sound good!

The best male jazz singer out there today, and this simply sounds marvelous through the H3.

 

Thanks for sharing, wonderful concert

Not that many. Right now he and Jose James lead the pack. And yes, Porter has some r&b qualities to his tone, but make no mistake, he's a jazz singer. I disagree with the more Marvin Gaye than Johnny Hartman. He is neither. It's 2013, my friend. Soon to be 2014. Jazz has evolved from Johnny Hartman. Soul has evolved from Marvin Gaye. A lot of what's out there on the radio is garbage to my ears. Then there are hybrids and new routes in the idiom. Miles got this and pushed the music forward. Porter is a Jazz singer. So called soul singers today can't sing and use auto tune. That's an insult to Porter.

Sure, jazz evolves, incorporates sounds around…The Bad Plus don't sound like the Bill Evans Trio, Dave Douglas' Music jumps off far from Miles/Clifford Brown/Lee Morgan, Ben Allison's music and bass playing may have Mingus as a early source, but takes from contemporary music sources and sounds decidedly different. The argument over "what is jazz" can go on forever, and is splitting hairs, to some extent. (What was it Ellington said, only 2 kinds of music, good and bad…). Just commenting on his style. (play back his falsetto wail at about 12 minues in, I hear Gaye immediately there…not everywhere, though). If anyone ever says my singing reminds them of Marvin Gaye, I certainly won't be insulted (thrilled, actually).

…when you get to the mid concert, about 20-21 minutes, (the ballad) the jazz chops are more evident…

Thanks Don. I've been in contact with KEF USA customer service, and the lady i've emailed seems pretty nice. Hopefully they can come up with something to help me with this issue? I'll let y'all know what happens. Especially those looking to purchase KEF M200

I wonder if the Carbo Tenores would be better for K-Pop with the female vocals an all than the Carbo Bassos?
