Jazz vocalist Gregory Porter's seminal 2010 debut album Water is set for its first reissue via Blue Note complete with an updated recording of "1960, What?" remixed by Hungarian DJ and producer Opolopo! "When I made Water, I [wanted to] say who I am, even though people were encouraging me just to make a record of standards," Porter told Jazz.FM about his debut. "I had decided that I wanted to put some of my original music on the first record. I'm glad that I did, and I think the success of that gave me confidence to continue on with it."

The origins of Water trace back to Brooklyn, NY where it was recorded in August 2009 with producer and arranger Kamau Kenyatta. Wanting a stable platform to showcase his standout vocal capabilities, Porter recorded the album in a live setting, featuring some gifted, up-and-coming New York instrumentalists.

Water garnered Porter a Grammy Award nomination for Best Vocal Jazz Album in 2011. It yielded the standout cuts "Skylark," "But Beautiful," and the a cappella take "Feeling Good," immortalized by Nina Simone.
