Now, Scott fans old and new can relive the experience in a double CD entitled Experience: Jill Scott (826 Plus). Recorded live at Washington DC's Constitution Hall on August 26, 2001, the CD is packed with nearly 80 minutes of music delivered only as Jill Scott can. Included are 11 live tracks plus six new bonus songs. Even the many fans who have already added Who Is Jill Scott? to their music collection will want to snap up her latest effort. Scott adds an extra something to each of the previously released songs, taking the tracks into new directions. And then there is the added value of the brand new, never-before-released tunes. "I wanted to give my fans something more with the new cuts and we recorded the DC show because it was magical and I wanted everyone who could not be there to experience it," says Scott. "DC has always supported me and I wanted to say thank you." Experience: Jill Scott (826 Plus) not only allows you to experience what it's like seeing Scott perform live but you also get six new songs, done with her unique flair and passion.

One of the brightest stars to emerge from the Philadelphia nu-soul scene that spawned Erykah Badu, The Roots and Bilal is poet/vocalist Jill Scott. Riding the momentum of her 2000 debut WHO IS JILL SCOTT?, this Pennsylvannia native's sophomore bow is EXPERIENCE: JILL SCOTT 826, a 2-CD outing of live performances and a handful of studio cuts. Backed by her fabulous 9-piece Fatback Taffy, Scott casts aside the more mannered versions of much-loved songs like "Slowly Surely" and "Getting' In The Way" and infuses them with breathy arrangements that unwind over unstoppable grooves and shimmering nuances.
Affable and loquacious, Scott's down-home on-stage patter is as engaging as her music. When she's not playfully dogging her image as a positive goody-two shoes within the intro to "It's Love," she's discussing pointed observations of a scantily clad teen at a bus stop leading into the sinewy 11-minute mix of sensuality and exploitation that defines "Thickness." New studio cuts like the ultra-funky "Gimme" and her lo-fi hip-hop Common duet "High Post Brotha" are equally potent and show Ms. Scott is only getting started down the road to a legendary music career.
