    When Cleveland R&B vocalist Gerald Levert first burst onto the mainstream music scene in the mid-'80s along with his brother in the hit group Levert, a fresh new vein of soul music was introduced. GL's roots run deep; his dad Eddie was an original member of the O'Jays, and Gerald has always brought a distinct sense of musical history to his work. As a solo artist, Levert has continued to mine the lode he established with his former group, blending time-tested soul songcraft with contemporary production. GERALD'S WORLD is no exception; the tracks and arrangements bear a fully modern sound, showing that time has clearly not passed the veteran singer by. Nevertheless, the old-school values (emotional commitment, earthy soulfulness, and plain old lung power) that have always informed Levert's work are present here, whether he's raising the roof with a percolating, funky track, or deftly making his way through a romantic slow jam.
