Jill Scott+Luke James
Jill Scott's music is generous and contains multitudes: scorching brushfires of soul tracks with the Roots and (in her best spot this decade) Eve, plus 13 years' worth of post-r&b flecked with spoken word and inhabited by one of the genre's warmest voices. She'll be at Radio City Music Hall this New Year's, promising emotions that transcend the season's glitz. Opening are Danja protégé and Beyoncé-beloved Luke James (song to look up: underrated r&b edifice "I Want You") and Gang Starr mastermind DJ Premier.
