Performer Notes
  • Despite beginning her career in her 40s, Brooklyn-based singer Sharon Jones has been bringing true biscuits-&-gravy soul to the table as if she's been doing it since the day she was born. On her third album for the Daptone label, 100 DAYS, 100 NIGHTS, Jones, who's backed here by label house band the Dap-Kings (also the touring band for British neo-soulstress Amy Winehouse), rips through a set of deep '60s-inspired funk and R&B that sounds anachronistic in all the right ways. Jones and her band deliver their sermon completely unfettered by contemporary hip-hop production or commercially suitable digital gloss. Yet this isn't some clever simulacrum for nostalgists only; rather, Jones's muscular voice and aching delivery, and the Dap-Kings' skill and obvious love, prove the longevity and viability of vintage soul.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.78) - 3 stars out of 5 -- [With] some of the finest horn charts ever created for soul music -- funky, jazzy, subtly voiced things that compare to Pee Wee Ellis' trickiest writing for James Brown."

Spin (p.106) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[Sharon Jones' songs] sound old and new, wiggly and sexual, raw and cooked..."

Entertainment Weekly (p.64) - "[T]he Dap-Kings' slower, moodier template gives Jones' voice the space it needs to soar." -- Grade: A-

Uncut (p.98) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "The Dap Kings' Southern Soul simulation is in high demand these days....It's all impeccably done..."

Magnet (p.101) - "This is a retro soul act with songs that are more than just horn-and-rhythm showcases. Some feature sly major-to-minor transitions and guitar solos..."

Down Beat (p.62) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[With] hook-laden tunes that often sound like newly discovered Motown or Invictus Records sessions."

Living Blues (p.62) - "100 DAYS, 100 NIGHTS opens with the cascading horns of the title track before the funk-drenched rhythm section and Jones' rich vocal wash over the ears in vintage analog glory."

No Depression (p.102) - "Jones and the Dap-Kings reproduce the sounds and the soul feeling of Motown and James Brown...[with] funky ease and gospel fervor and emotional complexity..."

Q (Magazine) (p.121) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[Jones is a] gospel-raised New Yorker with a voice like a tornado..."
