Jazz vocalist and songwriter Gregory Porter has been sweeping the world with his second album Be Good. With a mixture of contemporary and vintage jazz sounds, Porter created a project that many can appreciate. What I found, though, is a re-mixed version of his hit “1960 What?” from his debut album Water. Sprinkled with some Cuban flavor, Gerardo Frisina transforms the conscious call of action into an even funkier dance tune.
And if you’re interested in the original sound, check out the video below. Shot in Detroit, it’s a dedication to the uprising of a working, and many times overlooked, class of strivers.
