Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings Live @ SXSW

|:|Listen to/Download their whole set @ NPR|:|

This groovy bandy really brings back everything that is great about jazz and 70's funk. They break it down hard and revive it real slow, just how it's supposed to be. It's hard not to get spellbound by their contagious instrumentation. The set includes snippets of "When The Saints Go Marching In" and "This Land Is My Land." If nothing, appreciate her voice as one of the classiest and broad-shouldered in the biz. Listen to it live on NPR or download the whole thing above as a 47 minute long mp3. Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings are headed to Cat's Cradle on Tuesday, May 11th with Binky Griptite & The Mellomatics. Tickets are sure to be a hot commodity, getting yours before they're all out. Check out the new single"I Learned the Hard Way" from their upcoming album I Learned the Hard Way out April 6th. Pre-order from Amazon for $7.99.
