Jill Scott 

Sunday, September 26; the Pageant

In the Neo-Soul Diva pantheon, Lauryn Hill is the fallen angel, Alicia Keys is the cash cow and Erykah Badu is the bazooka-toting enigma, but chuck 'em all and give me Jill Scott, whose 2000 debut Who Is Jill Scott? Words and Sounds, Vol. 1 is a still-stunning mix of hip-hop bravado and Philly-cheesesteak soul that has finally gotten a Vol. 2 in the form of her new LP, Beautifully Human. When Ms. Scott grandly re-emerges this Sunday, bring a date: Her crooning lova-lova songs all but guarantee post-show romantic interaction.
