Luther Vandross: Power of Love (Epic); Keith Washington: Make Time for Love (Qwest); Jon Lucien: Listen Love (Mercury)

Listen to the recent albums by Freddie Jackson, Will Downing, Omar Chandler, Keith Washington, Peabo Bryson and Phil Perry and what do you hear? Studied imitations of Vandross's trademark purrs, octave climbs and rounded tone.
