My clothes were damp from the rain outside, and my feet hurt from standing so long in the line that snaked around the block. But all was well, all seemed so light and bright when Jill Scott strolled out on this late July evening and smiled on us at D.C.'s 9:30 Club. The place was packed for the first show of her two-night stand at the venue. It was part of her short, national "buzz tour," held to promote the release of her long-awaited sophomore album, Beautifully Human: Words and Sounds Vol. 2, which hit stores last Tuesday.

I'm taking my freedom / Pulling it off the shelf / Putting it on my chain / Wearing it round my neck ... It's Monday morning, a holiday, and Jill Scott's greeting over the phone is like warm maple syrup. She practically sings hello. "Happy Martin Luther King Day," she chimes. The soul singer is calling from her native Philadelphia, where she's promoting her acclaimed sophomore album, Beautifully Human: Words and Sounds Vol. 2. By this time, the record is already gold-certified and steadily climbing to platinum sales.

Vivian Green seems to think she's doing something that nobody else has ever done before. Most new pop vocalists go on about their influences - how they absorbed Stevie Wonder's Innervisions, Carole King's Tapestry or somebody else's record and it sparked something within. But Green, the latest singing-songwriting darling in the crowded urban-pop field, says she has always done her own thing, followed her own instincts, shaped her own sound. The comparisons to Alicia Keys, Minnie Riperton and Jill Scott really grate on her nerves, you know.

Over the past eight years, Jill Scott has won Grammys and sold millions of albums singing mostly about two things: sex and food, but not necessarily in that order. Granted, she possesses one of the most dynamic voices in modern R&B, a powerful and stunningly clear instrument with an almost operatic range. But her songs - especially many on her latest album, The Real Thing: Words and Sounds, Vol. 3 - too often fall into banality. Onstage, though, Scott can be thrilling. Live, her songs are infused with generous amounts of vocal and musical zest, something her albums could use at times.

Chuck Brown will turn 75 this August. It's a benchmark the so-called Godfather of Go-Go never thought he would hit. He has been making music now for nearly 50 years. He has even outlived younger contemporaries, like poet and performer Gil Scott-Heron, who recently died. "I'm just glad The Good Man let me live this long. I didn't expect that. I expected to make it to 50," he said. But despite his age, Brown doesn't intend to quit. The past year, in fact, has seen Brown at his most productive.

TV 'Coming Home: ...' : Just because Sesame Street is a kids' show doesn't mean it can't tackle tough issues. Queen Latifah hosts this smart and sensitive documentary about families dealing with the physical and mental scars of war. It's accessible for kids, but it's also compelling for adults. Airs at 8 p.m. Wednesday on MPT-Channel 22. DVD 'Marley and Me': Owen Wilson stars as a newspaper reporter who gets more than he bargained for when he adopts a rambunctious lab. When it hit theaters over Christmas, this doggy drama was capable of reducing even the most cynical moviegoers to tears.
