Jill Scott - Who is Jill Scott
I love Jill Scott, she was a huge early influence for me - when I was a teenager this record was essentially all I listened to. I was in a jazz band and I played piano. Because I took jazz in school, I was always trying to find a way to integrate that within my own songwriting. She was the first artist I listened to that was doing this pop writing that was so obviously jazz music at the same time.
