This Tuesday and Wednesday night, August 16-17, Dmitriou’s Jazz Alley in Seattle has a soulful engagement with legendary R&B icon Freddie Jackson. Jackson’s famous songs include “You Are My Lady,” “Rock Me Tonight,” “Jam Tonight,” and “Hey Lover.” From his artist biography:

To urban contemporary listeners, Freddie Jackson is one of the biggest stars of the latter half of the ’80s, dominating the R&B charts seemingly at will. Jackson’s forte is sophisticated, romantic soul ballads aimed at adult audiences, but he is also capable of tackling urban contemporary dance fare and even the occasional jazz tune.

The beloved R&B legend is working on a major comeback for his 12th studio album. Jackson says he wants to pay tribute to some of his favorite “R&B angles” on this album, including Whitney Houston, Luther Vandross and Aaliyah. “It was very important for me to dedicate and pay my respects to some of the R&B angels that left here way before their time,” he says. Of his new, fresh, take on R&B, the balladeer says he wanted to “awaken” his loyal fans and showcase his love for R&B.”

Finer with Time will be the precursor to an international tour, and a portion of the proceeds from its sales will benefit H.O.P.E. for Cancer Patients & Families.
