  • Cover
  • Gregory Porter
  • The Storyteller
  • By Allen Morrison
  • Although Porter has great technical strengths as a singer—a round, sonorous baritone, effortless intonation and clear elocution—his appeal is not purely musical. It’s more about filling an ancient human need for a storyteller.

  • The Busiest Big Band in America
  • By John McDonough
  • Take any big band in DownBeat’s polls, add in the ghosts of Mingus, Basie, Shaw, the Dorseys, Herman and Kenton, and you still wouldn’t match the road time that the Miller band logs by bus.
