Last time Quiet Storm king and loverman supreme Keith Sweat swept through Orlando, it was as part of a group Valentine’s Day show with Bobby Brown and El DeBarge. This time around you get Sweat all … to … yourself. The come-hither canon of Keith Sweat still sounds fresh and lascivious to 21st-century ears – “Get Up On It,” “My Body,” “Freak Me,” “Lose Control” – and it’s all down to Sweat’s voice, by turns seductive and plaintive. He’s a worthy successor to Luther Vandross, and this uncertain year could definitely use a little romance.
