Decades after Charlie Wilson first led the Gap Band, his velvet vocals still run smooth. Following two well-
received adult-contemporary albums, on Just Charlie, he dabbles with bouncier bass lines on tracks like ''Never Got Enough,'' and remakes Roger Troutman’s talk-box-assisted ’80s jam ''I Want to Be Your Man.'' Meanwhile, longtime fans will find joy in ''Can’t Go,'' a midtempo ode to a wife whose love he won’t surrender. B
