A Quick Tip by djevoke

  • Nov 28, 2010
There is nothing better than listening to Jill Scott when it's raining or actually with any kind of weather. She is absolutely amazing. She started as a poet, became a singer, and then, an actress. Each song she sings, you can hear the raw emotion that she was feeling at the time she wrote the song. She doesn't rely on any of that AutoTune or harmonizing equipment because she doesn't need it. With an incredible range, she takes you along for the ride. Full review to come soon ;p

Folks who know the rough and tumble of life, love right, love wrong, passion misspent, passion fulfilled, lonely nights and empty days and everything in between declare, ‘Yeah, girl!,’ ‘Go ‘head on!’ and ‘I feel ya’. And in the tradition of the four albums that precede it, THE REAL THING is another cause for celebration for those who live for the real.

Commenting on her latest, much-awaited Hidden Beach CD – which features production work by Scott Storch (DMX, Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, Ja Rule), Jill’s musical director Adam Blackstone (The Roots), Carvin “Ransum” Haggins & Ivan “Orthodox” Barias (Musiq, Chris Brown, Mario) and JR Hutson among others – Jill says, “I thought the last album (2004’s Grammy-winning “Beautifully Human,” Words & Sounds, Vol. 2) was more ...
