Is there an artist of this century who has meant more to soul music lovers than Jill Scott? Her reign began 15 years ago with the release of her seminal album Who is Jill Scott? and continues to this day.

That 15th anniversary is being celebrated this month with a killer greatest hits compilation of Jilly from Philly entitled Golden Moments. The sixteen track collection of digitally remastered hits and fan favorites also includes “I Adore You,” a previously unreleased vault recording produced by platinum hit makers Carvin & Ivan. Golden Moments covers Jill Scott’s near decade with the Hidden Beach label (2000- 2009), where she made some incredibly memorable music. And the album cover artwork utilizes original paintings by noted African-American artist Chaz Guest (whose work currently hangs in the White House) capturing a young Jill live in performance at the label’s star-studded launch party on June 1, 2000.

Kicking off with “Jilltro” and ending with her still sassy “Gettin’ In The Way,” Golden Moments presents Scott’s career-defining songs in a fresh context which will remind old and new fans alike why they first loved her. We’re proud to be presenting Golden Moments as our newest SoulTracks Listening Room. Listen to it below and enjoy Jill Scott’s best all over again!  Source Soul Tracks
