The Daptone Super Soul Revue - Jazz a Vienne

The Daptone Super Soul Revue featuring Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, Charles Bradley and his Extraordinaires, Antibalas, The Sugarman 3 with special guests; If there's a label today in New York that still captures the spirit of vintage soul as defined by the artists of the Apollo Theatre, it has got to be Daptone Records. The label's revue is greatly anticipated for the return of its star Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings with their new album: 'Give the People What They Want' (2013). With their unique mix of rough Rhythm'n'blues, funk and lascivious ballads, Sharon and her eight funkateers revive a mighty and festive style of soul. On stage, Sharon Jones (a native of Alberta, like James Brown) is sensational. Equally at ease with funky train and shing a ling, her smoky voice harks back to the greatest hours at the Apollo. Singer Charles Bradley from Brooklyn is a survivor from the 70's. He recorded his first album ('No Time for Dreaming', on Daptone Rec.) at the age of 62 and is now enjoying success, telling his own story, that of a normal working guy who earned his living as a cook during the week and did James Brown impersonations at the weekend. His magnificent resurrection has now produced a second album, 'Victim of Love'. The proto funk spiced with afrobeat of the Antibalas gang and the chicken style saxophone of Neil Sugarman are further highlights of the revue. (87 min)
