New Music: Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings

Written by on April 15, 2010

Danny P. and I have known each other for years, and our common love for music has no doubt strengthened our friendship.  If you take my advice on this, you and I, too, will be friends.  The new release (May 4) by Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings“I Learned The Hard Way”, is one extra funky, retro styled smooth ride in a Caddy!  Listening to this album is like walking inconspicuously through the frame of a classic Blaxploitation flick.  For a hot second I was Ron O’neal in a smokin’ jacket, loungin’ on a polar bear rug sportin’ a leopard skin speedo and smokin’ a hand rolled cigarette. 🙂

For real tho…the album is the truth; especially if you like your music raw and full of real sound.  I’m sure I made it sound like I Learned..” is oozing with testosterone, but actually, Sharon Jones stands out front with a commanding and masterful performance.  The majority of the songs take come from a female POV, but there’s no mistaking the bravado dripping from every note laid down by The Dap Kings.  Click the image for more info and free download of the new single…
