Ok so she's got a Grammy – but that makes us love her even more! Jill Scott is one of the greatest soul artists to emerge in the past decade – and this second album avoids the usual "sophomore slump" by showing a whole new side of her talents! Disc one is a great live set – showing that Jill's organic talent isn't the product of studio trickery, and can conjure up as much warmth in person as it can on disc. The backing is tight, jazzy, and with a different finish than you might be accustomed to from Jill's first LP – less hip hop beats and more real funk drumming, a fuller group instrumental sound with lots of nice solos, and over it all, incredible vocals from Jill! The set's got smoking live versions of "One Is The Magic #", "A Long Walk", "Love Rain", "Getting In The Way", "Fatback Taffy", "He Loves Me", and "Do You Remember". CD

Soulful sax lines from Mike Phillips – put together with that "something extra" that always makes HiddenBeach records sound so great – in a way that nicely pushes Mike's sound past the smooth jazz mainstream! The set features guest work on nearly every cut – from artists who include Stevie Wonder, Marcus Miller Jamal, Norman Brown, Lauren Evans, and others – but there's always plenty of room for Mike's sweet lines right up front, on cuts that include "Stay Awhile", "Fallin", "7 Days In Paradise", "Picture Me Rollin", "Right Person Wrong Time", and "Gonna Miss You".
