This is still evident to some extent and Chip Crawford, as main collaborator and pianist is excellent throughout - whether as accompanist or soloist. Even if you're a dance aficionado you will have heard this track thanks to the excellent house reworking by Claptone which is also included on this Deluxe Edition. He is now, appropriately enough on Blue Note - as this is clearly the sound that Gregory Porter loves - all those classic albums on that label, from the period when Jazz was the popular music of the day. There are few albums where when you want to sit back with a glass of wine and unwind that you don’t end up reaching for the skip button for some of the tracks… but this is one of those rarities. This is firmly in the mould of Water and Be Good and it sounds very much like those abums - with the same all acoustic, small Jazz group feel.

Mike Hobart of Financial Times wrote "Gregory Porter ’s largely self-penned major label debut is an artful and free-spirited blend of love songs, social commentary and reflections on life. Firstly the quality of the recording seems excellent to me, close your eyes and you can almost see the band around Gregory Porter. Of course, he has such an amazing voice that this is all justified - but what made him stand out from the crowd before, was the Jazz musicianship and sophistication.Each part gets a share of the gospel harmonies and your singers need to be on their toes with rhythm and timing. Liquid Spirit is a metaphor for water, when something is liquid it’s quick at hand so it’s like having that energy and that spirit and that soul accessible.

The strength of Liquid Spirit lies in Porter's songs, based upon personal experiences with a relatable and emotional immediacy.

The sound is more Blues-Soul than Jazz which is where the problem possibly lies with the purists, but the superb “stripped back acoustic” sound makes this a very intimate listen.Since our conception Liquid Spirit Coffee Roasters has been committed to sourcing and supplying products that we know our clients will love. Recommencing with the water analogy that characterized his debut disc, Porter saw Liquid Spirit as a logical progression in his burgeoning discography as it touched on some of the same themes, particularly the highs and lows of romance, his childhood, and socio-political observations. Do yourself a favour, if you're feeling stressed, pour yourself a drink of your choosing and put this album on. From tempo tracks (Liquid Spirit) to quiet ballads (When Love Was King) the sound was deep and engaging. A wide range of music styles can be found on this album - jazz, gospel, ballad, blues, soul - which help paint a pallet of images and textures for the listener.
