Stephen Holden on Freddie Jackson

The NYTimes on the singer appearing at Feinstein’s: “Since his heyday, the love god has largely been supplanted by the more ferociously athletic sex god, and pop-soul itself has been largely vanquished by hip-hop and rap. But old styles never die; they just fade away. The warm response to Mr. Jackson at Feinstein’s suggests that this Park Avenue club, in which Ashford and Simpson have had major success (they were present on Tuesday and joined him onstage), is an ideal place for post-Motown pop-soul singers of a certain vintage to carry on the sweet talk.”
