1960 what?

I took these photographs at Glastonbury Festival, West Holts Stage, 2015. They are of jazz singer Gregory Porter who provided a stellar performance. Porter moved to Brooklyn in 2004. He worked as a chef at a restaurant, where he also performed, as well as at other neighbourhood venues before moving on to Harlem club St. Nick’s Pub, where he maintained a weekly residency. He released two albums on the Motéma label, 2010s Water and 2012s Be Good, before signing with Blue Note Records in May 2013. His third album, Liquid Spirit, was released in September 2013.  The album won the 2014 Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Album and enjoyed commercial success rarely achieved by albums in the jazz genre, reaching the top 10 on the UK album charts. It was certified gold by the British Phonographic Industry selling over 100,000 units in the UK alone.The track 1960 what? is taken from the 2010 album Water.
