Like most of R&B's finest talents (D'Angelo, Lynden David Hall, Erykah Badu, Chico Debarge, The Roots and Macy Gray--before she became a combined living legend and household name), Jill Scott doesn't fit neatly into any marketing game plan. The exquisitely chilled sounds of her aptly titled debut, Who Is Jill Scott?--one part jazzy-funk mixed with two parts slow and sexy hip-hop-inspired soul--defy tidy pigeonholes. Made from the same mould as Erykah Badu and Meshell Ndegéocello, Scott is blessed with a voice that flits between intimate spoken word love poetry and stirring melodies. Like D'Angelo, her grooves are a subtle blend of funked soul and sensual jazz. And, like all of the above, Scott sounds as if she means every sexually-charged word as she demands to know how her lover wants it on "It's Love", warns off the other woman with "Getting in the Way" and suggests an intimate encounter with "Long Walk". In fact, all that Who Is Jill Scott? lacks is the standout single that would make her the household name that she so deserves to be. --Dan Gennoe

I was introduced the music of Jill Scott when I first met my beloved, it was one of the (only) C.D.'s they had that I wanted to play time and time again. After that..... an obsession was born! This album is perfect. Musings on the positive, negative and just plain ironic aspects of life and love from a real poet, and boy, she can sing too!. Included here are songs that would (and did) make excellent singles, mixed with bizarre but everso soulful moments of inspiration. This is not a short C.D., there are many songs, but the product stays fresh right to the very end. Buy this!!!!!!!!!

In a year where Neo-Soul was becoming increasingly popular, with favourites Erykah Badu and D'Angelo making impressive comebacks, newcomers Macy Gray, Lucy Pearl and Angie Stone making waves with their fresh sounds, Philadelphia native Jill Scott stood out with her unique sound. "Who Is Jill Scott? Words & Sounds Vol.1," the complete title of Scott's debut, is one of the best albums of the new millennium. Released summer 2000, "Who Is..." was a gradual seller. The album peaked at only #17 in the USA, but went on to shift 2 million copies. The biggest single from the album, 'A Long Walk' was a hit a year later.
Scott's music is pure & genuine soul music. Scott has a wonderful technique of mixing subtle spoken word with breathtaking vocals over sweet instrumentation. Scott was a poet before embarking on a music career, and this is clearly evident on the songs of this remarkable debut - Scott's lyrics are perfection!
A personal favourite of mine is 'The Way' - this is Jill Scott at her most seductive, the music is heavenly and Scott's sensual vocals make this track a classic. Another highlight is the poetic 'A Long Walk' - a beautiful song, Scott's vocals astound me on this, she sings with so much passion. 'Gettin' in the Way' - the first single, is a song that oozes attitude but the music it alone enough to melt butter.
'Who Is Jill Scott?' is an essential album for soul lovers, but anyone can appreciate this record, Scott's spirit is so vivid on record, it is definitely something that must be heard. In 2001, Ms. Scott released "Experience 826+" an impressive live album of her best-selling debut album, along with a second disc of new material. In 2004, her sophomore album was finally released; the superb "Beautifully Human."

It's been years since I've purchased a cd and felt complete satisfation with that cd. For once I felt like I got my money's worth! If I had $ like that I would even venture to say I owe you for this soul soothing piece of artistry. I play "Who Is Jill Scott?" EVERY morning at work I START my day playing Jill Scott ... and the cd ends up playing for hours. I rock from "Jilltro" thru "Try", then I start over! Miss Scott did a marvelous job on this cd and to see her perform live is simply the icing on her wonderful cake! My, my, my, I know your mama is proud of you girl ... and for just cause! The first time I saw Jill Scott live was in the Miami Arena - June 2001. Chills ran up & down my spine as I witnessed the unity of at least 300 people standing on the floor (I was in the stands) swaying together -- all going in the same direction, singing along with Miss Scott, every lyric, every lick, every rif - which showed their allegence ... it was so beautiful. Everyone on one accord! Word! It took the crowd at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center - August 2001 some time to realize that it was ok to get with a sista, but they finally got there. Her backup singers are no joke either! They are so tight! Will there be vocal sheet music of her music (He Loves Me). She deserves EVERY award she's nominated for. I'm feeling you J-I-LL SCO-T-T-T-T-T-TTTT!

This has been my favourite album since its release. I love it, i cant get enough of it. I am actually buying my 4th or 5th copy today because i keep lending it to people who just dont want to give it back! It's fine by me tho because i think Jill is awesome and i love it when people appreciate her as much as i do.
I had the pleasure of seeing her at brixton academy and what a show, i was blown away, speechless, completely and totally absorbed for the duration of the show. I left feeling like i was walking on air.
Her latest release is great, i must say it's a bit of a grower. I think it was always going to be hard to match or live up to the first one but i must say the more i listen the more i love. This woman is "it" what more can i say?!

I get home in the evening when it's dark and cold outside,I draw my curtains, light my candles, leave the TV OFF, I shower, put something comfortable on, have dinner, get a glass of red wine. Then I put Jill Scott's CD on and get ready for some knock out, mind blowing, conscious, positive, uplifting, spiritual and educational entertainment. Let me tell you that Jill Scott is all that and MORE. The sultry jazz lyrics, interspersed with a back drop of hip hop (AND I HATE HIP HOP) just leaves you weeping for more.
It is the type of music that you can listen to by yourself, with friends, with children, in the car or with someone special. It has something for everyone.
I cannot force you to go out and buy the c.d but if you don't you are seriously selling yourself short and depriving your ears of some truly magical music. Since reading about her in Essence magazine a few months ago I have not looked back.
Jill Scott - I salute you !!!!
