Jack Freeman wants to know if anyone’s up for a slow dance. Anyone?

I’m not a huge fan of post-00s R&B. I’m especially allergic to dude singers. They’re boring, uninspired, monotonous. But soul-centric fellas like Aloe Blacc, Mayer Hawthorne and, more recently, Jack Freeman are gradually restoring my faith in the genre.

Freeman’s new longplayer, Lynnie’s Juke Joint, was one of the best non-rap albums released last year. The songs are well-written, beautifully sung, brilliantly produced. “Slow Dance” is the clear standout in my book. In addition to tipping its hat to your mom’s record collection, it underlines some strengths, namely the ability to pick the right tune and sing it at just the right note. “Slow Dance” is a good place to start if you’ve never heard of him. Matter fact, go ahead and watch the video below. Get familiar with the dapper dude behind the ultra-smooth music. Jack Freeman. Remember that name. He’s a rocket going North.
