The woman who robbed Erykah Badu's crown as the queen of nu-classic soul does it again on her second album Experience. Like Badu, Jill Scott has released a live version of her debut work, though Scott has gone one better and produced a double CD with an extra disc full of new material as well. The concert was recorded in Washington DC but though Scott changes up the tempo of tracks such as "Love Rain and A Long Walk", giving them a needed freshness, they're still never quite as powerful as the recorded versions. However her (unlisted) cover of A Tribe Called Quest's "Find My Way" is stunning. This almost matches her performance of "You Got Me" on the Roots' Roots Come Alive album as one of the most emotional performances captured live of the last few years. There's a surprising lack of guest stars on the album. Surprising because, after the massive success of her debut album, Who Is Jill Scott, the entire R&B community must have been clamouring to work with her. However it's also refreshing to not find the same names such as Busta Rhymes, Missy Elliot and Ludacris going through the motions all over Experience. The new material is as sexy and slinky as her debut cuts although producer Jazzy Jeff uses some very well-known breaks (Brass Constructions Changing for example) to keep the album catchy. The album kicks off with the 4 Hero produced "Gotta Get Up" which sports a very early 90s post-acid groove feel. "Sweet Justice" boasts her exquisite mixture of pain and passion that she so deftly articulated on "I Think It's Better". "Gimme" is a sure-fire hit and the operatic, grandiose "Be Ready" is also a fitting climax to what is another marvellous album from one of modern souls true greats. --Jake Barnes

If you own the first album you may think that the first CD of this new album, the live recordings, will be wasted on you, however this would be wrong. I have the first album, and most people that I know who also own it all agree that is a spectacular debut album, with tracks such as 'Slowly Surely' and 'A Long Walk' breaking into the charts and appearing on very musically specific compilations, such as Gilles Peterson's 'Worldwide' album. The live recordings on the first CD of this new album sound very different to the original recordings. The tracks have all been beefed up, extended in places, and being live feature short solo jams by the musicians in her band. Playing live gives the artist more freedom to have fun with the music, and often they will liven things up for a live crowd, which is exactly what Jill Scott has done here. The other thing that you will notice is that Jill Scott displays a vocal range, and range of vocal stylings which is not evident in the original album. My favourite track on this CD would have to be 'A Long Walk' which was not my favourite track from the first album, and in a couple a places here Jill Scott manages to sound very similar to Nina Simone; very impressive indeed.Read more ›
Jill Scott is a talented and gifted muscian and has so much potential. She is marvelous live. This album allows those who have not been fortunate enough to have seen her live and witness her talent to hear how marvelous she is . A must buy. This album proves that Jill Scott is not just a one hit wonder, the album definantly lives up to the last. Nu-soul at its best
The band are killin' it (in a good way!) and it is such an honest performance from Jill who connects with her audience as though they were a few people sitting in her living room. The spoken words on "Love Rain" bring a new meaning to the poeticness of the studio version, you can sit back and really home in on the emotion behind the words. It's powerful.
For me, the harmonies from the backing singers add an extra flavour to the album that makes it a treat to listen to. Each song sounds different than the studio version and thats why I love it because you get to know different ways of portraying the songs.
My favourite album of all time.
Jill's live work is something special, as she captures your attention from beginning to finish, wets your appetite and leaves you begging for more. This album is a must for your collection, don't be put off by the fact that it's live, this album is definitely very different to her studio albums and gives you more insight into some of the amazing songs Jill has composed over the years.
A truly inspirational talent within music, film, poetry, etc. Jill is definitely one of the best out there.

As a recently new listener, this is the CD that got me into the genre a few years ago. A must for anyone who appreciates REAL R&B not the horrible mainstream type. Read morePublished on 13 April 2014 by TheShadow

Not only has Jill Scott one of the most soulful voices i've heard in years but she has integrity and spirit. Her studio work is excellent, but Jill Scott live is magical. Read morePublished on 31 May 2006 by Spider Monkey
