CHARLES WILSON

Troubled Child

2009-07-25

On the blues/soul circuit since 1964, Charles Wilson seems to have hit his stride with Al Green-ish soul sets, with this disc following up on his award-nominated "If Heartaches Were Nickles." The nephew of the late Little Milton, Wilson knows his way around a song, as evidenced by the opener, "Where My Baby Went," a Bobby Bland tune or "The Good Side of My Girl." He gives homage to his departed uncle on "Somebody's Tears" and does an soul cover of Bob Marley's "Is This Love." Wilson has talent and pedigree, and most of this set is pleasingly smooth R&B. B-R&B 07/09 Michael J.
