Jill Scott is taking me on a ride today. What an amazing talent. But more than that, this woman speaks a woman’s truth directly with no compromise — from the pure joy to the depressing wretchedness of loving someone. As she says, she is a real woman – she keeps it moving; she holds it down…. Gotta do what a sista gotta do. Gotta make a move.
Here’s a selection of songs from her “Light of the Sun” CD released in June 2011. Today is my first time hearing these songs. I thought she had gone all commercial on me. But I still hear the Jilly from Philly I first loved from “Who is Jill Scott? – Words and Sounds, Vol. 1”. Enjoy!
