(AllHipHop News) Two decades ago Miss Jill Scott was one of the prominent voices of the Neo-Soul movement. Her debut album, Who Is Jill Scott? Words and Sounds Vol. 1, is viewed as one of the finest bodies of work to emerge during that era.
The three-time Grammy winner is celebrating the 20-year anniversary of Who Is Jill Scott? in 2020 by heading out on tour. Fans of the singer-songwriter can catch Scott on the first leg of the trek beginning February 7 in Kansas City, Missouri.
Who Is Jill Scott? Words and Sounds Vol. 1 was released on July 18, 2000, via Hidden Beach. The 18-track LP includes the singles "Gettin' In the Way," "A Long Walk," and "The Way." Scott's musical masterpiece was nominated for Best R&B Album at the 43rd Annual Grammy Awards.
“I’m going to be true to the album setlist. I’ll do every song in the order of the album. My audience should bring their CD covers; some may know the list by heart," said Scott. "I will create musical arrangements for the songs purposed with new energy, but keep the integrity of the original songs they love. Expect theater. Expect incredible musicianship. Expect love.”
