There's no shame in stanning for Jill Scott. She digs kind of deep when she sings, doesn't she? Like she's singing from the guts of her ancestors. Whether she's authoritative and bellowing or teasing and genteel, she doesn't waste a single delicious note and that's why her live performances are the stuff of legend. Her Live in Paris DVD/CD, which you can pre-order at Amazon, hits February 5th and I wish I could get my hands on some of the tracks. Particularly the live performances "My Petition" and "Whatever." But these clips after the bounce should be enough to hold me over.
