Sharon Jones

November 19, 2016

With the recent passings of such high profiles artists as Leon Russell, Mose Allison and Leonard Cohen, and the not-so-high-profile passing of Holly Dunn, it’s sad to see another artist leave us this month: Sharon Jones.

The internet knows more about Ms. Jones than I do, I just like her music, so that’s where you should turn if you’re interested in learning more about her life, of if you’ve never listened to her, or her band, The Dap-Kings, before.

Here’s a good interview from NPR’s Dinner Party Download that was conducted just this past July.

And here’s a video of Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings from a concert where they were the opening act for Prince.

Rest in peace, Sharon. You’ll be missed . . .

    So miss Sharon–she shook it and rocked it as good as Tina Turner!
