Sharon Jones And The Dap-Kings Soul Time! Album

Review of Soul Time! Album by Sharon Jones And The Dap-Kings

Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings release their fifth studio album on Daptone Records. Certainly a band well known in music circles due to their first rate musicianship and professionalism that is dedicated to a revivalist movement, that aims to capture the essence of funk/soul music at its height in the mid-1960s to mid-1970s, 'Soul Time!' is indeed a welcome return. Sharon Jones is a brilliant singer who has all the minerals of a true spirited soul singer. Since the bands inception in the 90's, their journey has grabbed many attentive listeners on the live circuit, who will not be disappointed with this latest album.

'Soul Time!' is Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings as their usual class selves, displaying great skills and genuine soul. Twelve tracks on this new release take you on a sophisticated ride that seems like a timeless journey and an engrossing sonic tonic that displays excellent production. Sharon Jones continues to shine with another premier display of vocals and lyrical bite of love and consciousness. 'What If We All Stopped Paying Taxes' adds that bit of political intrigue that all good soul singers have, which allows us to stop and think for a minute.

What's clear is that this new release from Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings continues to bring the funk and soul that they do with genuine class. Displaying great musicianship and soulful delivery, 'Soul Time!' continues their revivalist movement with aplomb and style. Cool!
