Album Review

Billy Porter has a theatrical approach to singing, so it makes sense that he'd cut a live album called At the Corner of Broadway + Soul. He relies on originals written by himself working in conjunction with other writers as well as Broadway material from Stephen Sondheim and others. Porter's extroverted style imbues songs like "King of the World" (from Songs for a New World) with flair and passion, and, as the title to the album suggests, soul. He's joined by a boisterous group of female backup singers and a full band, creating a large sound. Porter's overall approach to this rather non-mainstream set list is, nonetheless, mainstream. His singing style wouldn't be out of place, in fact, on popular radio. Porter enjoys talking to his audience at length, holding forth on everything from how much he likes Sondheim to God's love to giving inspirational pep talks. At the Corner of Broadway + Soul is a long collection, with 20 selections and a 76-minute running time. For those interested in a mainstream approach to Broadway, Porter should fit the bill. ~ Ronnie D. Lankford, Jr., Rovi

Customer Reviews

I came for Time...

I heard one song on a TV show and searched for the song. I was and still am mesmerized by his voice, choice of songs and the soul he poured into this, that I ended up buying the entire album. Love it...ALL of it!

Brilliant Billy !!!!

From start to finish this collection by Billy Porter is engaging , humerous, dynamic and the list could go on and on. Each song gives you a little something different and the styles and vocal are there to match. If anyone buys albums by reviews this hopefully will convince anyone who doesn't yet know about this phenominal talent to purchase something you will listen to over and over . Billy rocks!

Master Thespian

I hessitate to write about this work of art because even glowing words can be limiting. In this powerful opus we witness an extrordinarily giftted artist in full throttle. Always in compleate control of his virtuosic and truly amazing voice, he boldly walks right up to the edge of the clif as if to proclaim to the world the beautiful message of his music, which is LOVE! The message of love has never been held, or cared for, or delivered with such majestic musical mastery.These words fall short at describing it. You simply must give yourself this gift.
