  • Engineers: Vidal Davis, Keith Pelzer, Jeff Townes.
  • Recorded at The Studio and A Touch Of Jazz Studios, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Includes liner notes by Steve McKeever.
  • WHO IS JILL SCOTT? WORDS AND SOUNDS VOL. 1 was nominated for the 2001 Grammy Award for Best R&B Album, Jill Scott was nominated for Best New Artist and "Gettin' In The Way" was nominated for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance.
  • "A Long Walk" was nominated for the 2002 Grammy Award for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance.
  • Jill Scott first turned a multitude of heads by penning the brilliant hip-hop love jam "You Got Me," which with the aid of Erykah Badu became a huge hit for fellow Philly-ites The Roots. On The Roots' subsequent live album COME ALIVE, Scott's onstage performance swiftly dispelled any notion that her vocation as a songwriter was due to a lack of vocal skills. Scott is easily Ms. Badu's equal in sultry sensuality and subtle vocal acrobatics, and her lush, luxurious lyrics are almost on par with the patriarch of sexy lyrics himself, Prince.
  • WHO IS JILL SCOTT? reveals a first glimpse of her talent; "Do You Remember" lives and breathes as practically a street-style homage to the Purple One. While there is a slow, physical groove flowing through this debut, particularly captivating on tracks such as "Slowly, Surely" and "Honey Molasses," Ms. Scott also shows herself capable of a certain force, evident on "One Is the Magic #" and "It's Love." Her most alluringly raw moment comes on the hidden track "Love Rain," a partial spoken word duet with Mos Def.
