Since releasing 2007s "The Real Thing: Words and Sounds Vol. 3", Jill Scott has become a mother, lost a lot of weight, and also fought a bitter battle to get released from her record contract with Hidden Beach.

"The Light Of The Sun" is her debut on Warner Brothers Records and it's a free and easy jam session-style affair. "Blessings" opens the album with Scott telling us in song and spoken word of all she's thankful for: her son, her grandmother who almost lived to see 92, even her son's father. The song sounds like it fell off of Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On" album, absolutely beautiful!

The record is frontloaded with the most upbeat songs. "So In Love" features Anthony Hamilton and is a bouncy summery almost Disco affair. "Shame" is retro Funk with interesting drum patterns and horns and reminds me of "Gimme" from her live record. It features Eve & the A Group.

The playful "All Cried Out Redux" finds Scott singing to Doug E. Fresh's beatbox effects before the entrance of some Dixieland sounds. "Le BOOM Vent Suite" is a 9 minute piece with the first three and a half minutes sunny and upbeat before segueing into a slower groovy ballad second half.

From here out, the pace slows down "So Gone (What My Mind Says)" is a steamy ballad featuring rapper Paul Wall. "Hear My Call" is a spare piano/string affair. "Some Other Time" is groovy with skittery beats and spoken word. "Quick" is Jazzy with big bass and light percussion.


"Making You Wait" finds her telling her man she is making him wait five dates to find out if he's true. "Until Then (I Imagine)" features sprinklings of piano, "Missing You" is a dreamy ballad with soft guitar sounds, "When I Wake Up" continues that Gaye vibe. "Womanifesto" is spoken word set to an a capella backdrop. Closing is the Jazzy "Rolling Hills".


Scott's 2011 tour is titled "Jill Scott's Summer Block Party Tour". This should be the perfect soundtrack.
