Jill Scott�s sensational new work. Whatever Scott may lack ...">

Love and Sex: A Threesome

"Smooth groove poetry set to smooth groove R&B" or "soul-hip-hop-tinged feel music" � these are a couple of ways to describe Jill Scott�s sensational new work. Whatever Scott may lack in total vocal control, her maturity, her poetry jumps straight into your face addressing a full range of love and emotion themes: from the platonic to the incidental to the passionate to the forlornful. Each sentiment connects to an appropriate musical production ranging from the sultry classy sounds of mainstream adult soul music, to jazzy inflections over hip hop grooves, to inspirational beats supporting lyrical themes that at times address issues of black feminism, unrequited love and the multidimensional emotions of life�s complications. While the music is always supportive if not dominant, it is Scott�s poise at connecting lyrical literalness with a strong musical emotional element that gives this outstanding work its strength. You�ll never find a mushy sentiment or a confused musical phrase on this recording. It is rock solid throughout.
