Neo-soul goddess Jill Scott's mix of classic R&B, pop, funk, and jazz is a vivid amalgam that gains in energy when heard live in concert. Accordingly, LIVE IN PARIS proves to be an ideal way to experience Scott's unique musical paradigm. Listening to the interaction between her multifarious vocal talents and the fluid, genre-crossing grooves her band lays down, one gets the feeling of being on an open-ended journey in which all directions are equally accessible. The Deluxe Edition of this release includes not only a CD featuring electrifying live versions of "The Way," "He Loves Me," and others, but also a DVD that contains the entire Paris program plus four songs from a House of Blues performance and a documentary video.
