"The New York vocalist, and one time member of the Sophisticated Gents (at age 17), Jeff Redd, released his debut, A Quiet Storm, in the year of 1990 on Uptown/MCA records. Though, it didn't cause much noise; Redd displayed a strong, soulful voice and very professional delivery, and had some fairly good new jack songs and romantic ballads. Redd's responeses from late-night radio shows were solid ("Love High" and "What Goes Around, Comes Around."), the only positive thing that was missing was a big hit."
Was not a big hit but has its brilliant moments.

"Although no heir to the great soul singers of yesteryear, Jeff Redd was a competent and inspired vocalist when given the right material and production. The Quiet Storm-flavored ballads "Love High", "What Goes Around Comes Around", "Surrender" and "Brazilian Lady" are very enjoyable but were not big hits and Redd subsequently faded from the scene."
