Freddie Jackson: Private Party/Christopher Williams: Not a Perfect Man

Carol Cooper, Newsday, 1995

FREDDIE JACKSON and Christopher Williams are mature, polished performers with superb voices. Both were signed to their respective labels at a time when each record company wanted its own Luther Vandross – e.g., smooth, pop-inflected sol singer. And both have often had trouble finding material worthy of their interpretive powers.
