Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings | "I Learned the Hard Way"
Here is a new single from the jazz/funk group Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings. It is the title track from their upcoming LP I Learned the Hard Way out April 6th.
This smashing new song is full of Sharon Jones' vocals, deep, arresting, and silky smooth. Arguably the Billie Holiday of the 21st Century. This funky group has successfully brought Jazz back to the music scene today. Their sound is very unique and reminiscent of early Jazz contemporaries such as the one and only Jazz Messengers. They have a quality about themselves which appeals to mainstream music and simultaneously to classical Jazz nuts.
