FFS Advent Calendar | Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings – Ain’t No Chimneys In The Projects


We don’t need to tell anyone that 2016 has been a brutal year for so many reasons. Soul great Sharon Jones was taken from us too soon last month after a battle with cancer, but her spirit will live on in the brilliant music she made with the Dap-Kings. Her last full-length release with the band was 2015’s festive treat It’s A Holiday Soul Party, a funky mix of originals and standards. The highlights are too many to mention, but ‘Ain’t No Chimneys In The Projects’ – originally released in 2009 – has always stood out. Rest in peace, Sharon.
