Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings

Tucked away among my string of Christmas posts, I had to finally write about Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings. Their third album, 100 Days, 100 Nights was released October 2, 2007 and broke Billboard's Top 25 Independent Albums Charts. The album has been getting very good reviews around the music blogs and would make a great "I-never-heard-of-them-before" stocking stuffer.

You know the Dap-Kings from their work with Amy Winehouse, tapped by producer Mark Ronson to supply that 1960's R&B flow on her album Back To Black.

Once again they bring the funk and infuse Sharon Jones' bold, soulful voice with a swing reminicent of classic Motown/Stax records. This is The Daptone Sound! Daptone Records
