Have you heard Gregory Porter's new album? Many are calling him the best new jazz vocalist in years. Tomorrow night on PBS, I chat with the Grammy nominee about his chart-topping new album, Liquid Spirit, and what inspires him to create.

In the clip below, Gregory talks about the meaning behind the song lyrics from "No Love Dying".
