Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings

Her chemo is finished, her hair is coming back and her album is out. Last summer Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings postponed their album release and cancelled a tour after Jones learned she had pancreatic cancer. Now the cancer-free dynamo and her horn-happy band have returned to the road to promote their disc, “Give the People What They Want.” And that’s what the Brooklyn ensemble is giving fans —an irresistible slab of fresh but vintage-inspired soul. One of America’s most exciting performers, Jones, 58, proclaims that her voice and stamina are back. She promises a heavy dose from the new album plus a few Dap-King oldies.
