Critiques CD: Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings | I Learned the Hard Way

Ms Jones is a classic, old school soul singer and she and the Dap-Kings create perfect, 60s style R&B with fantastic backing harmonies, soulful grooves, wailing horns, trebly guitar and, well, that voice… Sure she can sing but, more importantly, her voice has character – you can hear that she’s lived deeply and soulfully in the real world. Standouts include “Money” – a down and dirty jam that proves that rock’s bad boys owe everything to their R&B mammas – but all the tracks here are easy on the ears and full of down and dirty grooves.
