Lime Review - Music
Jill Scott, The Light of The Sun
Jill Scott returns for her first new album in a few years and since leaving the Hidden Beach label.
This is a strong album from the outset starting with my favourite on the album Blessed of which the production reminds me of Marvin Gaye, Leon Ware, Funk Brothers,70s Motown productions. Another track So in Love feat.
Anthony Hamilton also has this feel. There's newer r&b and trade mark Jill Scott slow jams, various cameos [Eve, Doug E Fresh and Paul Wall] on the album too.
Another favourite of mine is the quirky Nu Wave feeling Some Other Time. A nice mix of real, traditional instruments, singing and spoken word skits on this album which flows well track to track with a natural feel.
