This upload was 63rd in the #funk - soul - jazz chart.
2016 has taken another great from us... the Funk -Soul goddess that is Ms Sharon Jones passed away yesterday! Together with her house band The Dapkings (and the Daptone record label) she did her utmost over the last decade or so to promote that old Funk and gritty Soul sound of yesteryear. Here's my mix of musical gratitude to her.
The tribute starts with a great Shuggie Otis cover, includes Nu-Funk anthems in How Long and Pick it Up, some first rate raw Soul in Somethings Changed and It Hurts to be Alone (a Bob Marley cover!) plus many more examples of the best in upfront Soul and Funk in an old school style.
Catch you soon Soul-lovers!
