Robin McKelle: “I fell in love with Gregory Porter’s voice.”
New Yorker Robin McKelle comes full circle on an album that sees her up close and personal.
Rochester, New York’s Robin McKelle has a rich heritage: two jazz albums recorded with a big band, one featuring duets with Lee Fields and Gregory Porter, one dedicated to the sound of Memphis. The Looking Glass, her sixth, rooted in blues and soul, breaks new ground. “The songs are more intimate, the music more reflective,” she says.
