Released in October, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings 100 Days, 100 Nights is an incredibly soulful album that in a perfect world would be topping the charts. Whether flying solo or backing Ms. Jones, Brooklyn’s The Dap-Kings, the house band for Daptone Records, never fail to deliver the impeccable soul and funk chops that seemed to come so readily, and effortlessly, three decades ago. Think: The J.B.’s, think Stax, think the Muscle Shoals sound.

Now translate those thoughts to a contemporary working band, who, while not recording with Daptone artists, are out bringing the house down, both as a whole unit or splintered into various funk, soul, and r&b offshoots.

Like Jones & The Dap Kings previous albums Naturally, and Dap Dippin’, 100 Days, 100 Nights continues to mine the best natural ingredients of the soul r&b canon spanning the past five decades.

  1. Big ups to the AD for giving props to one of the great houses of modern soul, funk and Afrobeat music – Daptone Records.

    Check them out in the current issue of HARP Magazine here: http://harpmagazine.com/articles/detail.cfm?article_id=6341

  2. I love this album. I can’t help but think that if Sharon Jones was a white, trashy woman (yes you Wineshouse), her music would be playing non stop on the radio. She is so talented and has such power and passion in her voice.

  3. If you like Sharon, check out label mates the Budos Band. Much like the Dap Kings, the funk sound they produce sounds both wonderfully fresh and three decades old.

  4. Wonderful record. Love it. Been on this Daptone Records kick for a minute now.

  5. Can only agree, that woman kicks so much ass. First time I heard her I was thinking how the f%$k can I not have heard of her before? Then I found out she wasn’t some lost soul queen but the freshest of the fresh doing the greatest sounds as good, if not better than before. The Amy Winehouse call is right, Sharon Jones should be sitting on top of the heap!

    And she’d do it with a whole lot more style.

  6. last night i just saw sharon jones in san diego. i’ve seen a lot of shows and for $20 i got my ass kicked royally. it was way more than i expected…the energy, sharon’s stage presence, her beautiful smile and her stellar band was on fire all night. a won’t be forgetting this show for a while. if this tour is hitting your town…go see them and bring your dancin’ shoes.

  7. […] never stopped to read any of the numerous blog posts that have been written about Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings. I’m not sure why, but […]
