Art Porter, Jr. was born in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1961. Porter joined his father's band (The Art Porter Trio) as a drummer at the age of 9 and played with them into his teen years. Porter was then drawn to the saxophone, after noticing its melodic abilities, and began to play it during shows with his father's group. On the 17th anniversary of his death, we will remember Art with his good friend, Christopher Cuben-Tatum.
