Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings

Jones doesn't just perform; she becomes a center of seductive gravity. She commands every inch of the room in ways that make you want to give yourself entirely to fits of raw spirit.

Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings: Naturally

Don't call it a comeback. And don't you dare call it a throwback, either. Sharon Jones was 'introduced' to a new generation as a cryogenically-thawed funk tornado, but she makes it clear on her follow-up that she is not just a one-time beat junkie's fix.
