Critic’s picks: Pop music

Aram Boghosian for The Boston Globe

D’ANGELO After a lengthy hiatus and no new album since 2000’s “Voodoo,” this R&B/neo-soul singer (left) made a triumphant return to performing live last year. Judging from his performance with Mary J. Blige at the Bank of America Pavilion in August, he’s in fine form again, still sounding unabashedly sensual on songs like “Untitled (How Does It Feel?)” and “Brown Sugar.” May 28, 8 p.m. Tickets: $49.50-$75. House of Blues. 800-745-3000,

MATTHEW MORRISON A veteran of productions both on and off Broadway, Morrison is widely known for his role as Will Schuester on the TV show “Glee.” For this two-night stand with Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops, Morrison will perform selections from his forthcoming album of Broadway standards and, most likely, songs from his 2011, self-titled debut. May 28- 29, 8 p.m. Tickets: $22-$92. Symphony Hall. 888-266-1200,


JESSE DEE On “On My Mind/In My Heart,” his new album and first for the Chicago blues label Alligator Records, Dee swings and sways his way through a collection of original soul jams and ballads that wouldn’t have sounded out of place in the 1960s. The Arlington-bred Dee opens for the James Hunter Six, who are on the road behind the new “Minute by Minute.” May 29, 8 p.m. Tickets: $17, $15 in advance. The Sinclair, Cambridge. 800-745-3000,
