I absolutely love the Jill Scott Live in Paris+ DVD! It captures her amazing vocal ability, transparent lyrics, and versatility. The way that Jill Scott engaged the audience makes you feel as if you were actually there. I also loved the remixed and extended versions of Jill Scott classics. I thought it was cool how she gave the musicians a chance to shine. Her band gave a lot of energy to the concert. Overall, if you're fan of genuine talent and creativity, you should buy the Live in Paris+ DVD!

A "must have" if you are a fan of Jill Scott's music! It was as if you were there front and center grooving to the smooth sound and beats of Jill and her band!

I had already had a taste of Ms Scott live on her "Experience" CD a few years ago - she was indeed in very good form, gave sparkling performances overall and basically sold me on her as an artist who shines not only in the studio but in live performances.

This latest project is quite simply mesmerizing. The CD/DVD combo is a MUST for Jill Scott fans. While the CD cuts are indeed good, seeing her perform them is an added bonus. She is good with an audience and the tasty camera work done to capture the feel of the the concert and its excitement is indeed a plus. But Jill simply shines with that wonderful smile of hers, her improvisational skills are top-notch, her lyrics are little short of amazing and she manages to create quite an intimate setting/showcase for her many talents. Her set at the House of Blues was tight as well. She also put fresh spins on some of her old hits - check out "Golden" - off the chain!!!!!

Another woooooooooooooooooooooonderful surprise is her incomparable accompanying musicians, most notably her keyboardist....her backup vocalists and band members got a real chance to shine....as Jill so aptly put it "nothing here but voices and musicians and god-given talent!" It is indeed rare to capture the spontaneity of musicians all on one accord and feeling each other to produce a phenomenal musical experience. This was DEFINITELY the case here!

If you are a Jill Scott fan, get this right away....you will NOT be disappointed in the least. Even if you are not a Scott fan, if you appreciate good music, and Jill and her band incorporate a number of styles here, there is enough variety to satisfy even the most discriminating tastes.

Eeeeeeeeeexcellent!!!!

This dvd is amazing and just shows Jill doing what she does best, singing the most amazing songs and doing it extremely well. If you love the "Beautifully Human" album, then you MUST own this! Let's start supporting great artists, so that we may get more great music...

Many believe that true soul music is where it's at, not the trendy, borderline Pop that gets labeled as R&B just because of the artist's skin color or subject matter. Jill Scott has never purported to be some high and mighty songstress that can sing anybody under the table, but she surely can. And when you listen (and watch) Live In Paris+, you will undoubtedly see that she is truly like no other. Fresh off the release of her latest studio album The Real Thing: Words And Sounds Vol. 3, Jill blesses us with yet another live album (the first being Disc 1 of the Experience: Jill Scott 826+ album) but this time from Paris, France. The songs are all familiar, but the delivery of each selection is exquisite to say the least. Songs on the cd include The Way, Whatever, The Fact Is (I Need You), Golden, My Petition, Rasool, Bedda At Home, and He Loves Me (Lyzel In E Flat). The DVD includes performances for all these songs as well as 4 additional live performances from the House of Blues in Los Angeles. Believe me when I say that Live in Paris+ is worth every penny. You already know that Jill has the chops and her band Fat Back Taffy are stellar at all times. If you've never seen her perform live, you might as well start with Live In Paris+.

Well,...it's been a long time coming, but finally, Jill has put her fantastic live concert on DVD,...and, because we have waited for so long, she gives us two concerts for the low price of one! The first concert is in Paris, and it was recorded on her 2006 or 2007 tour (I've seen them all!), and is by far some of her best work. Jill and her driving band give us rousing renditions of most of her best work from her first two albums. This was a time where Jill was a little heavy, but she was obviously hopelessly in love with her longtime love - Lyzell (of which
she named one of her most popular songs after). Most of the songs are performed with the same arrangements as what we were accustomed to from the CDs. And, as if that was not enough for one's money, Jill also gives us a second concert from her most recent tour in which she has trimmed down to her "Why Did I Get Married"'s character's more svelt and sexy look, and she performs many of her new and more edgy songs, as well as alternate renditions of some of her older work. All Jill fans know that the past year or so has been a rough transition for Jill in her personal life. Evidently, her beloved Lyzell has messed up and betrayed their
relationship (which led to a subsequent divorce), and Jill's new music is more bitter, yet it is still ultimately empowering.

She LOOKS good, she SOUNDS good, and she has a newfound confidence and more dynamic diva presentation. For me, I prefer the first concert because of its familiarity and because it has less of an edge, but everyone will love and appreciate both offerings, and, like me, will play and re-play the concert repeatedly!! This is a MUST BUY!!!

I'm sorry, but I don't think it will play on your player. The DVD is NTSC. I am not completely sure, though. It depends on what type of DVD player you have.
