Maxwell and Jill Scott Bring Soul to American Airlines Arena
Drawing on his most recent chart-topping release, BLACKsummers'night, as well as 1996's multiplatinum Urban Hang Suite, the Brooklyn-born Maxwell's silky vocal stylings ponder love and emotional connection in a boldly deep and complex way.
His coheadliner, Jill Scott, is more than capable of drawing her own crowd; known for a wise and honest perspective, not to mention vividly descriptive flourishes, her fourth release, The Light of the Sun (due out later this year), promises to be a further cementing of Scott's place as the neosoul queen. Between the two Grammy-winning neosoul pioneers and their balance of baby-making grooves and intellectual poetics, it's an R&B lover's dream.
