On his assured 2008 debut, A LONG TIME COMING, actor Wayne Brady offers up an engaging set of pop-leaning R&B tunes. While certain tracks are steeped in of-the-moment slick production (see the hip-hop-tinged "All Naturally"), much of the album features Brady nodding to the expansive R&B sounds of past decades, particularly on the smooth, quiet storm-like "Ordinary" and the Motown-influenced "I Ain't Movin'." In an inspired move, Brady reinvents the Beatles' "Can't Buy Me Love" as a gentle slow jam, and presents a reverent take on Sam Cooke's "A Change Is Gonna Come," not only showcasing his full, dynamic voice, but highlighting his considerable interpretive skills as well.
