by Will Downing
Released: Sep 2005
On his 11th album, the Brooklyn-born soul man keeps getting smoother. Unlike some of his peers whose music exists strictly in the bedroom/gutter, Downing has always been a class act, with songs more about true romance than a quickie romp. High-caliber live instrumentation accompanies him throughout these nine tracks, which include a cover of the Carpenters' "Superstar."
