Jazz singer Gregory Porter looks like a linebacker – which makes sense, because that’s exactly what he used to be. Although a shoulder injury put an end to that career path, things have worked out pretty well for Porter--his 2010 recording debut, “Water,” earned him a Grammy nomination the following year. His sophomore effort is called “Be Good,” and he talks with guest host Christian McBride about the record and performs some of it live in our studio.
