LISTEN: “Water” by Gregory Porter, on Water (2010)

This is the title track of multi-Grammy-winning jazz vocalist and songwriter Gregory Porter’s debut album. The live performance posted below took place in November 2010 at Dizzy’s Club at Lincoln Center in New York City. It features Chip Crawford on piano, Alex Han on alto saxophone, and Yosuke Sato on alto saxophone.

Water pouring down the sidewalks
Cleaning widows clear to see
Washing gumdrops down side gutters
Rusting chains and cleansing me

Greening gardens, drowning ants
Changing rhythms, bruising plants
Graying vistas soulfully
And again it’s saving me

Wash me, wash me, wash me
Let me rest in you
Let me flow away to glory
Save me, save me, save me
