✨✧ Jill ScottWoman ... CD
Blues Babe/Atlantic, 2015. New Copy ... $16.99 18.98
Jill Scott's first album away from Hidden Beach – and a set that really marks a tremendous comeback for the singer! Jill sounds better here than we remember in years – as sharply focused and musically pointed as on her tremendous debut from the start of the century – with energy that's apparent from the very first note – both in Scott's vocals and the overall construction of the tunes! All the older, funkier elements from hip hop are in the mix – but as on her debut, they never overwhelm her vocals – and instead seem to empower the singer to be as bold, as righteous as she can possibly be – really winning us all over again with her music. Titles include "Fool's Gold", "Back Together", "Run Run Run", "Wild Cookie", "Prepared", "Lighthouse", "Coming To You", "Beautiful Love", and "Jahraymecofasola". CD

✨✧ Jill ScottBeautifully Human – Words & Sounds Vol 2 ... CD
Hidden Beach/Sony, 2004. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The long-awaited "real" second album from Jill Scott – finally out 4 years after her massive debut! Fortunately, the passage of time has done nothing to dampen Jill's genius – and the sound, style, and overall quality of this set is every bit as great as we could have hoped. The production is a bit fuller at times, but never cloying or overly mainstream – and still very much in the lean, mean, stripped-down Philly groove that Jill brought to the masses with incredible force. Jill's got help from a host of great Philly talents too – including Andre Harris, Jazzy Jeff, and Larry Gold – all of whom work with Jill in a sinister blend of beats, keys, strings, and soul! Titles include "I'm Not Afraid", "The Fact Is", "Bedda At Home", "Cross My Mind", "Family Reunion", "Can't Explain", "Not Like Crazy", "Rasool", and "My Petition". CD

✨✧ Jill ScottGolden Moments – Jill Scott's Greatest Hits – The Hidden Beach Years 2000 to 2008 ... CD
Hidden Beach, 2000s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pretty wonderful retrospective of Jill Scott's years at Hidden Beach – timeless, richly emotional neo classic soul from one of the leading lights of her generation! We've been fans of Jill's from the first album onward, and if you're a younger fan, this excellent collection is a great place to come on board. Her early work stood out tremendously back in the day, bringing a natural realness to the contemporary scene, and it's held up perfectly over the years. Includes the unreleased track "I Adore You" – plus a sweet set of classics that includes "Golden", "He Loves Me (Lyzel In E Flat", "Slowly Surely", "Whatever", "The Way", "Cross My Mind", "Comes To Light (Everything)", "Crown Royal", "Hate On Me", "My Love", "It's Love", "Getting' In Thye Way", "Slowly Surely" and more.

SuchTrial & Error ... CD
Arc Sai, 2014. New Copy ... $8.99
One of the warmest soul debuts we've heard in a long time – a really well-crafted batch of work from the up-and-coming Such – who's also the first indie soul singer we've heard to hail from the Denver scene! The music is definitely contemporary soul, but there's a glistening undercurrent of jazz in the instrumentation – which gives the songs a really wonderful sense of flow as the vocals step back and forth over the gentle grooves! Most numbers are midtempo, but have a funky undercurrent – that pace that initially served Jill Scott the best at her start – although Such definitely has a style all her own. Quite strong, right from the start – and only getting better as the record rolls on – and titles include "Open Book", "Sugar Maple", "Bump This", "You", "Trial & Error", "Wake Up Call", and "Under My Skin".

✨✧ VariousRed Star Sounds Vol 1 – Soul Searching ... LP
Red Star/Sony, 2001. Near Mint- 2LP ... $5.99
A collection of tracks put together by the folks at Heineken's Red Star Foundation – a program that's designed to support "urban influence music" (whatever that means!) The upshot of the package is that it's a great set of underground soul grooves – perhaps not as cutting edge as the folks at Red Star might have you think (because if you're into this stuff, you're already one step ahead of the crowd), but well selected, with a really solid soul sound throughout! Titles include "Glitches" by Amel Larrieux & The Roots, "A Long Walk (touch of jazz remix)" by Jill Scott, "Today (Earth Song)" by Erykah Badu, "High Off You" by Jack Herrera, "Butterfly" by India Arie, "Legend" by Nelly Furtando, "So Sweet" by Brad Young, "Still Searching (remix)" by Damien Marley & Stephen Marley, "When Your Ups Are Downs" by Don Scribbs, "Sweetest Thing" by Lathun, "You Make Me Wanna Smile Again" by Eddie Jackson, and "Don't Stop" by Spanish Fly. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VRevelation Is Now Televised ... LP
BBE (UK), 2005. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An instant classic – and one of the best new soul albums of the 21st Century so far – the debut of Valvin Roane II, aka V – a fresh talent from the wide side of the Philly scene! V's working here with production from Jazzy Jeff, Pete Smoovah, and Pete Kuzma, Jill Scott's bandleader – and the set has an amazing quality that more than lives up to it's classic-styled cover and title! V sings with a voice that would be great enough on its own – a church-schooled mode that's deeply soulful, and which hearkens back to 70s Marvin Gaye or Stevie Wonder – but with the added production from Jeff and the Petes, he really strides forward with a bold new sound – one that's spacey one minute, crispy the next – often laidback, yet never lazy in its approach to the music. And while it would be easy enough to label this one as "classic soul" and leave it at that, V's also got a vibe that's richly his own – one that really fits the unpretentious photo on the cover, and which is a refreshing change from overly-postured male soul (and that includes even the stuff that's pretending its not!) Titles include "Born Again", which features Jill Scott – plus "Confess", "Best Friend", "Picture This", "Still", "Who Would I Be", "Would U Be Mine", "Anotha Phase", "Melody", and "Hey Pretty Baby".

✨✧ VariousHidden Beach Presents Unwrapped Vol 3 ... LP
Hidden Beach, 2004. Used 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A batch of smooth, jazzy instrumental takes on hip hop hits – from Hidden Beach Records! If you scratch just a little bit below the surface of the Hidden Beach roster, and dig little bit deeper than Jill Scott, there's an ultra smooth, kinda Quiet Storm vibe of sophisticated soul with lots of warm jazzy touches. That instrumental vibe is brought into these instrumental takes on hip hop's biggest hits, which keep the bouncing, kenetic appeal of the originals but play the tunes out in a modern jazz style. Linear horn and synthesizer and bass arrangements abound, with some scatty vocals over the top. Smooth jazz with a bassy bounce! Tracks include "In Da Club", "I Know What You Want", "PIMP", "Tainted" (a nice little nod to a lesser known single by Slum Village), "Lose Yourself", "Doo Wop (That Thing)", a Biggie medley, at 2Pac medley and more! LP, Vinyl record album
