Gilles Peterson // Significant Album // #126

January 26, 2017

We’re continuing the countdown of the albums that have shaped Gilles Peterson so far. The album this week is Who is Jill Scott by Jill Scott.

Jill Scott made her debut with this album in 2000, on Steve McKeever’s label, Hidden Beach Recordings’. She began her career as a spoken word artist and was eventually uncovered by Amir ‘Questlove’ Thompson from The Roots. A strong female poet with an opulent, robust and thoughtfully profound voice. One of R&Bs most celebrated artists, whose words and sounds never seems to disappoint.
