At the time of its release, internet rumor had it that Collaborations was a "taster" project--that is, a sampler to whet listeners' appetites for Scott's long-awaited third solo album, due in summer of 2007. But Collaborations doesn't play like something you'd listen to once before throwing your napkin (or, more accurately, your earbuds) down. Not only does it genre-jump with the kind of precision you don't normally find in an artist pinned to a certain musical movement (in Scott's case, neo-soul), it throws the weight of its bold names around without straining or slacking under the pressure. The hit here is "Daydreamin'," a fuzz-encrusted slice of alternative hip-hop off Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor, but there's so many other full-bodied contenders for mass adoration it could easily be eclipsed as the favorite. They include the soul-soaked "Said Enough," with the unmistakable Isley Brothers; the noirish thumper "8 Minutes to Sunrise," with Common (who also gets "Funky for You" together with Bilal); and "Slide," maybe the sexiest jazz-and-R&B hybrid ever to heat up a mainstream diva's disc. On that track, credit goes to Jeff Bradshaw for brilliance with his brass. But consider it: how many other singers could pull off sultriness alongside a trombone? Scott is a shape-shifting vocal wonder; Collaborations is the latest evidence. --Tammy La Gorce

Format: 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!

As ever, Jill Scott's voice and vocal style shines through on this compilation of some of the many collaborations she has done with a wide range of artists such as George Benson, Al Jarreau, Ronald Isley etc.
There are quite a few rap tracks on here, which may not be to everyone's liking. Some are better than others, but Jill's voice and the excellent backing tracks make them bearable (would be great to have the same tracks with just Jill's vocals - How about it Jill???)
Definitely worth buying, as the remaining soulful tunes are just too good to miss.

By Spider Monkey HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 26 Dec. 2010
Format: Audio CD
`Collaborations' was released by Jill Scott's record company in the interim period between albums to keep her in the public eye (and marketed as a taster album), but it is actually a pretty decent album.

This album offers us tracks from previous albums in a reworked format, like album opener `Love Rain' sung with Mos Def, as well as new tracks to delight existing fans. `Daydreamin' is a great track with Scott's vocals and Lupe Fiasco's rapping melding together perfectly. `Good Morning Heartache' has some awesome jazzy trumpet at the start and a chilled out feel to relax anyone, Jill's vocals are simply the icing on the cake. The album continues in this vein with each track throwing up the most soulful music and collaborations you are likely to hear in quite some time.

There are plenty of `big' names here, the aforementioned Mos Def being just one, as well as George Benson and other incredible musicians. Jill is an artist of the utmost integrity and an album like this was never going to be mere `filler' between her studio albums. This is the sweetest soul music and an excellent addition to her already incredible back catalogue.

My copy also came with a Hidden Beach sample disc with tracks by other artists from the Hidden Beach stable. Most of the tracks on this disc are impressive enough in their own right and get offered a decent career boost off the back of Jill's success. I am sure I'll be tracking down some of these albums from the listen I had here, which was the plan no doubt. Never the less, it made for a welcome addition to the package.

Feel free to check out my blog which can be found on my profile page.

I adore this album and have had this in my collection since it was released, it definitely kept me sweet until her last album was released.

I must point out though that I am a huge Jill Scott fan, but never would I say something is good, if it wasn't. But with that said, there has never been a time when Jill Scott hasn't delivered an amazing album, she has a reputation for being consistent with her works and even though this is only a collaboration album, it definitely showcases how special Jill is within music.

I would definitely recommend this to everyone.
