In Brief

*** Teddy Pendergrass, "Truly Blessed," Elektra. There remains in Pendergrass' style a moving sincerity and determination. He co-wrote half of the 10 tracks here, including the title song, a wonderfully churchy ode to optimism and strong faith. The only disappointment is his version of the Bee Gees' "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart," which demands the slow-building, over-the-top soulfulness of an Otis Redding.
