If you haven t heard by now, this past Saturday Sharon Jones joined Grammy Award winning Canadian singer Michael Bublé on Saturday Night Live for a show stopping performance of their duet Baby (You ve Got What It Takes) from Bublé s latest album Crazy Love.

On April 6th, 2010 Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings will release I Learned the Hard Way, their fourth full-length on Brooklyn s independent Daptone Records. The record marks a bold step forward for a band who almost singlehandedly stewarded today s return of soul music to its more traditional sound.

From the lush Philly-Soul fanfare that ushers in The Game Gets Old at the top of the record, to the stripped down Sam Cooke-style Mama Don t Like My Man at the tail, the Dap-Kings dance seamlessly through both the most crafted and simple arrangements with subtlety and discipline. I Learned the Hard Way is the Daptone Sound at its finest.
