“Transitions” is the name of the latest release from veteran R&B/Soul singer Freddie Jackson. His previous CD was a collection of classic songs that received the velvet smooth Jackson treatment. Freddie’s new CD makes an excellent segue back to the contemporary R&B genre.
Mr. Jackson has had a banner career, which has included many chart topping love songs. Transitions” continues his tradition of albums dominated by cool mid-tempo tunes and romantic slow jams. The title track is one of those mid-tempo songs that will start your foot tapping, head bopping, and before you know it you’ll be singing along with the hook “sweet transitions…..’ as the music fades. “Heaven”, “Hold On Me”, the funky overtones of “Superman”, and one of my favs “Can’t Get My Flow” keep the feel good sound flowin’.
Freddie turns the mood romantic with a nice selection of slow songs. There’s the dreamy “How Can I”, “More Than Friends”, “Tell Me About It”, and “Stay And Talk To Me”.“Until The End Of Time” is a classic love ballad that you’ll probably hear at the next wedding reception you attend. “Transitions” comes to a close with Freddie’s emotional tribute to Luther Vandross on “Superstar/Wind Beneath My Wings”.
But wait there’s more! “Transitions” has a special 2-disc edition. The second disc is a DVD of 17 Freddie Jackson video hits. Talk about value for your dollar…..
Be sure to add Freddie Jackson’s “Transitions” to your holiday wish list
