The title of Jill Scott's latest outing, the Real Thing tour, is about as redundant as it gets . . . for all the right reasons. With her ground-breaking career nearly a decade in the making, this neo-soul songstress is traveling the country in support of her third studio album, The Real Thing: Words and Sounds Vol. 3 , from Hidden Beach Records. When it comes to appeal, Scott's arsenal is really deep. Call it an enticing home-cooked mix of powerhouse soul, raw vulnerability and grounded "girl from around the way" attitude that should put a swerve in your hips, no matter how "un-hip" you claim to be. Anyone have an extra head wrap? See you at the Grove.
