Two weeks ago, Sharon Jones released her latest incredible soul album, I Learned the Hard Way, on Daptone Records.  The album is decidedly defiant and powerful, a certain step up from the already excellent 100 Days, 100 Nights.  The first single is the album’s title track, filled with funky grooves, dirty horn licks, and the vocal perfection we have come to expect from the group.  Jones’ vocal performance is particularly gripping–convincingly delivering her own version of “I Will Survive” by defying her lover and rising strong.  This album, along with the rest of the Dap-Kings’s discography, directly ports 60’s and 70’s funk music to the 21st Century and manages to sound just as good, if not better, than any George Clinton record.
