5.0 out of 5 stars Jill's Back From A Break!, 9 Feb 2007
This review is from: Collaborations [Us Import] (Audio CD)
Jill Scott's a singer with a mighty spirit and in addition to her own, all too few recordings over the years, she's made some good appearances on other artists records, a good deal of which are included in this album.

Jill's not the kind of singer to just sleepwalk into the studio and deliver a few standard vocals when making a guest appearance and instead, she brings a new sense of life and energy to each different track on this CD, coming across with a street-heavy vibe one minute, and a more laidback cosmic mode the next, and a more classically-tuned soul sound at still another end of the spectrum.

The album is a great illustration of the depths of Jill's rich talents, and even though we'd rather have her spending more time in the studio, recording her own music, we're still plenty happy to have so many of her great appearances together in one package like this!

This CD features 14 tracks in all, including "Love Rain" with Mos Def, presented in "head nod" and "coffee shop" remixes plus "Said Enough" with The Isley Brothers, "One Time" with Eric Roberson, "Good Morning Heartache" with Chris Botti, "Daydreamin" with Lupe Fiasco, "Let Me" with Sergio Mendes & Will I Am, "8 Minutes To Sunrise" & "Funky For you" with Common, "Sometime I Wonder" with Darius Rucker, "Slide" with Jeff Bradshaw, "The Rain" with Will Smith, and "God Bless The Child" with Al Jarreau & George Benson.

(Also features a bonus CD with material by Hidden Beach artists who include Jill Scott, Keite, Jeff Bradshaw, Peter Black, Sunny Hawkins, and Onitsha.)

If you are a fan of the Neo Soul Vibe out of Philly, you will like this album!
