Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Talent, Innovation, Style, Charisma, Passion and Versatility are just a few of the words that come to mind when people talk about the true artistry that has become Jill Scott's trademark. The Jill Scott Collaborations have appeared on a series of albums that collectively have sold in excess of 10 million copies domestically. Jill's chameleon-like ability to passionately perform in an eclectic array of genres, from hip hop, to jazz, to urban alternative, to spoken word, to latin jazz and gospel, has led many of her fans and peers to call her 'The Real Thing.' From the vaults of Hidden Beach,we are thrilled to show the world why Jill Scott continues to defy categorization with this first ever collection of what is arguably the most unique set of collaborations by one artist ever assembled: Jill Scott Collaborations. The Jill Scott Collaborations CD has something for music fans of all types as it features many of Jill's collaborative efforts over the past six years includingher incredible work with Will Smith, Sergio Mendes and Will.I. Am of the Black Eyed Peas, Moss Def, and others.

At the time of its release, internet rumor had it that Collaborations was a "taster" project--that is, a sampler to whet listeners' appetites for Scott's long-awaited third solo album, due in summer of 2007. But Collaborations doesn't play like something you'd listen to once before throwing your napkin (or, more accurately, your earbuds) down. Not only does it genre-jump with the kind of precision you don't normally find in an artist pinned to a certain musical movement (in Scott's case, neo-soul), it throws the weight of its bold names around without straining or slacking under the pressure. The hit here is "Daydreamin'," a fuzz-encrusted slice of alternative hip-hop off Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor, but there's so many other full-bodied contenders for mass adoration it could easily be eclipsed as the favorite. They include the soul-soaked "Said Enough," with the unmistakable Isley Brothers; the noirish thumper "8 Minutes to Sunrise," with Common (who also gets "Funky for You" together with Bilal); and "Slide," maybe the sexiest jazz-and-R&B hybrid ever to heat up a mainstream diva's disc. On that track, credit goes to Jeff Bradshaw for brilliance with his brass. But consider it: how many other singers could pull off sultriness alongside a trombone? Scott is a shape-shifting vocal wonder; Collaborations is the latest evidence. --Tammy La Gorce

Customer Reviews

Jill Scott is a great artist.
Amber Goldwire
Toward the end of the CD i became a little less inclined to listen because it wasn't enough of Jill's vocals included.

The entire cd just speaks to me.

First off, this collection is only meant to be an appetizer for the fans until the new studio album, The Real Thing, which will be released this summer. (Although I also imagine that it was released to get Jill new fans, including the people going out to buy Norah Jones' new one, to promote other ventures from her Hidden Beach label and to prove that Scott is a versatile artist).

Overall, I'm a little disappointed. The disc has some very nice collaborations, but most of the songs are very laid-back. I was quite bored listening to most of this. Maybe I just wasn't in the mood.

The tracks with Common are great and so is "Daydreamin'." I enjoyed the "Love Rain" remixes, even tohugh one of them was a hidden track on her debut. The real highlight here is "Kingdom Come." (It was on the soundtrack for the film of the same name.) Jill Scott goes gospel with amazing results. And she even skats in the middle! This track alone is worth the purchase.

For added value, the album comes with a bonus sampler of upcoming Hidden Beach artists Keite, Onitsha, Sunny Hawkins, Jeff Bradshaw, Peter Black and Leigh Jones. (I enjoyed it, but I dare say... some of these people just are not distinguished artists. They don't stand out like Ms. Scott). The sample also includes two snippets of Jill's amazing song from the new album, "In Stereo." Jill has re-invented herself once again. There is also a full length recording of Scott performing "The Fact Is (I Need You)" live. It is amazing and takes the song to another level.

I am a Jill Scott fan, so please allow me to speak my mind without the unhelpful votes unless if you really feel that way. I recommend this set for Jill fans only, not for the casual music listener. Although some of it is not that great, it is definitely worth the purchase for ther highlight tracks.

This collection of duets, triunes and other 'collaborations' is reportedly a prelude, a warm-up if you will, to Jill Scott's album of new material scheduled for release in the summer. I can't wait!

Hardcore Jill fans will probably have most if not all of the songs on here but it's nice to have them all in one place. I love everything the woman does but I can't say I'm a hardcore fan. I was thinking of getting the new George Benson & Al Jarreau CD for instance, not just because I'd heard good things about it (or because of the Grammy win) but also because I knew Jill was featured on it. As it happens, I think their version of "God Bless The Child" is very nice.

But there are a couple of tunes on here I wouldn't ever have gone looking for, like "Said Enough" featuring the Isley Brothers or "Let Me" featuring Sergio Mendes & Will.I.Am and I can hardly hear her at all on "Funky For You", which features Common & Bilal. I was pleasantly surprised by "The Rain" though, the collaboration with Will Smith, and I found myself humming the refrain all day after listening to it just once.

I agree with an earlier reviewer and must say I can't believe they didn't put the live version of "You Got Me" with The Roots on here. It's bad enough that Jill wasn't allowed to sing on the original studio version back in the day, but to not include it here is totally baffling. It's one of Jill's best songs (she wrote the hook, of course) and it is the song that kick started her career after all. I don't get it.

We never need to ask the question, Who Is Jill Scott? Again, because we all now know who Jill Scott is. Or at least we think so.

"Collaborations" is Jill Scott's latest album, released through the brilliant Hidden Beach Recordings, with a ton of very creative and legendary artists : George Benson, Bilal, Chris Botti, Jeff Bradshaw, Common, Lupe Fiasco, Kirk Franklin, The Isley Brothers, Al Jarreau, Sergio Mendes, Mos Def, Eric Roberson, Darius Rucker, Will Smith and Will.i.am.

Jill Scott shows her many musical sides from the jazz Jill, to the 'spoken word' Jill, to the hip-hop Jill.

You've got everything you need to hear. And its all on two discs.

It's a great come back from her not as successful album Beautifully Human: Words and Sounds, Vol. 2

The most enjoyable collaboration on this album, is "One Time" featuring Eric Roberson. They should make an album together.

The only criticism I have of this album is that it contains more music from the artists that Scott collaborates with than Jill Scott herself.

In fact, in several of the songs she only sings the chorus.

This will prove slightly disappointing for those who would have liked to hear more of Miss Scott's voice. However, I can comprehend why she chose to do this since the album is meant only to be a taster of the music she will be releasing later on this year.

Always a cut above your average neo-soulster, Jill Scott's singing somehow makes you want to be a better person and live life to the full.

Plus, Jill has tons of skills.
