Gregory Porter's Popular Voices

Zo 2 juni 2019
00:45 tot 13:45
BBC Four

Series in which Grammy award-winning soul and jazz star Gregory Porter takes viewers on a 100-year celebration through the mystery, joy and pain that lies behind some of the greatest voices in modern music. In part two, he explores the soft, intimate art of crooning.

Born with the arrival of the microphone in the 1930s, crooning was initially about men seducing women and thrived through signature stars like Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra. But far from disappearing with the advent of rock 'n' roll, the art of crooning gained a new existential edge and was transformed by the likes of Roy Orbison, David Bowie and even Lana Del Rey into a haunting and abiding strain of contemporary pop.

With Iggy Pop, Joshua Homme, George Benson and Beck.
