Jim Harrington of Inside Bay Area was on hand for Jill Scott’s first half of a two-night stand at the ornate Paramount Theatre in Oakland on Thursday (February 10). Harrington writes, “As great as Scott can be in the studio, she is even better in concert. But one has to be there to appreciate all that this lady has to offer. The live album, 2001’s ‘Experience: 826+,’ only partially captured her energy, stage presence, deep emotional connection with the audience and ability to lift her songs to a higher place.” The review at insidebayarea.com has since been removed.
