The latest edition in the WFMO X Music Savage Show “Song of the Week” spotlight comes to you from the late, great Sharon Jones and her wonderful band The Dap Kings. The first single, “Matter of Time,” is off the band’s final album, Soul of a Woman, which will be released November 17th on Daptone Records.
Soul of a Woman was recorded in Brooklyn at the label’s own studio Daptone’s House Of Soul while Sharon was receiving cancer treatment. She never let her illness keep her down and would give each session everything she had, which can be clearly felt and heard in “Matter of Time.” Knowing this album was created during her most difficult time, and the power Jones unleashed into the microphone despite the illness, is a testament to her soul and to her strength as a performer.
Sadly Sharon Jones passed away from pancreatic cancer on November 18, 2016. She is missed very much but has left a legacy of music behind that will never be forgotten.
