With the passing of one lightly jazzy, overtly 70s-inspired song into the next, I overlayed this soundtrack onto visions of dinner parties with my closest friends and slow mornings with a loved one. My initial listen to this album brought one word to mind: love.
The ability for an album to sound so hectic and so controlled at the same time is nothing short of masterful.
This is an amazingly versatile album, that can be perceived as complex or as simple as the listener wants, and serves as a virtuous introduction to this genre.
If people are complaining about the lack of “old-school” music in the modern day, then it’s clear they have not heard about Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings.
