Sharon Jones And The Dap-Kings Dap-Dippin


 A slice of tasty funk with the incredible Sharon Jones, listening to it, it could come from 1969 to 1970 but is actualy Miss Jones and the Daptones first album from 2002. I became aware of this band when one their tracks was featured on a Mojo magazine CD had a modern soul collection on it. They were the stand-out outfit on a very good CD. My biggest regrets this year was not seeing them when they came over to London and played a gig at the Koko. I just had too much going on at that time. The album is full of rhythm and boasts a really tight horn section, resplendent of the JB’s. As well as Sharon, you have the Dap-Kings, an eight piece funk band. There is also a new dance that I have to learn on it “the Dap Dip” it even has the dance steps inside the CD booklet. The tracks go from the furious dancer “Got to be the way it is” to the more mellow “make it good to me.” My favourite is “Pick it up and lay it in the cut” a song that rolls along and gets you moving and tapping your feet. Every song is a winner and if you like your funk in a Lynn Collins groove then this is for you. As the CD liner say’s Sharon Jones, this sister is B-A-D! and for £7.47 from Amazon including postage a sure fire bargain. So as us Soulies say KTF,
