Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings
When I first heard Sharon Jones and her band The Dap-Kings I thought it was a recording from forty plus years ago as their sound hearkens back to a time when Detroit, Michigan stood more for soul than empty skyscrapers and a bad economy. However, I soon learned that this Georgia-born New Yorker and her band were writing music right now. And right now you have to hear them. Think Motown, think James Brown . . . it's believable soul music.
