Overview

It often happens that the sons or daughters of famous musicians launch a music career on the strength of the parent's reputation, with only a thimbleful of their own skill to offer. Such is not the case with Gerald Levert, the son of O'Jays vocalist Eddie Levert, Sr. Like his father, Gerald has a penchant for soulful, stirring R&B sung in a passionate, often romantic style. 2007's Something to Talk About finds Gerald and Eddie working together again in much the same manner as their successful 1995 collaboration, Father & Son. Eddie's Philly soul pedigree is in evidence, but the sound is unmistakably contemporary, and Gerald more than holds his own alongside his legendary father. These tracks were completed before Gerald's untimely death in late 2006, and stand as a testament to his talent, and to that of his father, as well.

Editorial Reviews

Billboard - Gail Mitchell
The duo's combustible mix was first introduced in 1995 on Father & Son, which yielded the love and encouragement anthem "Wind Beneath My Wings." Already in the works before Gerald's untimely death in November 2006, this project once again underscores the uncanny resemblance of their singing voices.
