A grown-up’s Bell Biv DeVoe with more church and less street, Jodeci are four young Southern men looking for — and finding — the smoothest soul sound around. With writing and production help from new-jack loveman Al B. Sure!, Jodeci have made a forceful and assured debut on Forever My Lady. Divided evenly into dancing and romancing halves, the album sounds sophisticated beyond the band members’ years (19 to 21).
