I am a big, big fan of Jill Scott and I am happy to say that her latest album did not disappoint me at all. I think a lot of the songs are taken from years back so they feel familiar but also fresh and original.

I would definitely recommend this album to anyone who loves Jill Scott or any other neo-soul artist.

The original Jill Scott from the vault vol 1, has given this whole CD another level up from 'The Light Of The Sun'.
How Jill brings you in to each song, like she is reading her thoughts from a Diary, is excellent, and yet fills your mind with the many little private moments and insights Jill places in your mind. The characters and relationships she creates evoke a sense of life's most intimate and painful dramas, leading you through experiences so acute as to be your own. Funny thing is, it's how you would think anyway, if you feel similarly creative and enjoy the richness of life!
From the first track, Love To Love Prelude, to Holding On, you are captured and held with every wave of Jill's rich Poetry. I would say that with all the songs on this Cd, my favourite, which takes me away with an emotional pull would be, 'Comes To The Light' (Everything). My Husband, he loves Jazz, and 'Holding On' is his favourite on the CD - the rich vibrato tone of the guitar riff recalling for him the playing of the Blue Note greats like Kenny Burrell.

I have brought all Jill Scott's CD's from. 'The Light Of The Sun' and Who Is Jill Scott?
I play Jill's music every day, and still her music just gets under your skin, and brings out the sunshine with her wonderful rich voice.

Thank you Jill Scott for giving us fantastic real music! Love Deanna. xxxxxx

2011 proved to be an interesting year for fans of Jill Scott's work, seeing the release of much anticipated new material on her new label with 'The Light Of The Sun' (through Warner Brothers Records), soon followed by 'The Original Jill Scott: From The Vault Volume 1', available in a standard and deluxe edition (which two bonus tracks and an enhanced track / video version of 'North Side Philly Love (Live)'. This latter album, by former label Hidden Beach, contains music that was apparently stored away, being the result of Scott's always creating more material than was made available through her original album recordings. The question is, how does this older material compare against the newer fare?

The album opens with 'Intro - Love To Love Prelude', a twenty second track featuring a puntuated beat and a short vocal line, before launching in to 'I Don't Know (Gotta Have You)', which manages to offer a fusion of Hip Hop and Soul (evidenced through the looping sample driven backing), being a track that could sit equally well with Scott's earliest and latest work. 'Wondering Why? (You Don't Talk To Me)' is a typically potent observation from a feminine perspective ('Things have changed dramatically, I'm the Same Queen'), riding over a low slung beat and unobtrusive keyboard work, and fits particularly with the work found on 'Beautifully Human: Words And Sounds Volume 2'. This is equally true of 'The Light (Original Mix)', a sparsely driven groove over which Scott demonstrates her love (and ear) for the spoken word. Produced by Andre Harris and Vidal Davis (previously responsible for work by Glenn Lewis), listen to the very subtle piano that works around and through the track.

I suspect anybody reading this is already a Jill Scott fan, so you've already tuned into her and know what she's about. If so then you'll like this album. If your not already familiar With her music and poetry then i recommend you don't start here. You'll be better of starting with her earlier offerings like " Who is Jill Scott". For me she is the Greatest! and i love everything she does. So to rap this up, it gets a big thumbs up from me. Go out and buy it. I'm Sure you wont be disappointed.
