Grown Folks Music

This fall looks to be shaping up well with a burst of new mature sounds. I recently picked up Ledisi and Jill Scott giving me a neo soul feast of sounds.

Jill Scott's album is solid and has an edgier sound than ever before. Jill seems to talk about food less which is helpful. Previously, between the scrambled eggs, potato salad and whatever else, I found myself a bit obsessed with her obsession with food. A slimmer Jill Scott adorns the cover and she looks ready for the world in a new way. If you are a Jill Scott fan, get it. You'll enjoy it.

Maybe I've been sleepin' lately on the Neo-Soul scene, but who the heck is this Ledisi lady? I picked up her new album Lost & Found and it's one of the best I've purchased since Musiq Soulchild's release this summer.

Having been born and bred hip hop, Neo-Soul is a new discovery for me that is helping me feel more at home. Suddenly I became lost in the A bay-bay, wipe me down and I'm too old to Crank dat Soulja Boy.

Fall 2007 is yielding some good sounds. Enjoy.
