On a night Belgian Prime Minister Yves Leterme called it quits, Jill Scott performed a sexy, sassy concert in Deurne’s Rivierenhof. Disarmingly charming and personable, Jill produces a powerful blend of soul, jazz and R&B that brought out a laid back crowd of twenty something hip hop heads, middle-aged jazz cats and curious locals. One Roy Ayers inspired rendition of A long walk later, Jill had the crowd at her mercy. While the show started 40 minutes late and slow, the 11-strong band quickly made up for lost time and Jill entertained like I knew she could. Good times.
