Everybody in Brooklyn loves Sharon Jones. Of course, I loved her first. Seriously tho, I will never forget seeing her in Black Betty (now Commodore Bar in Williamsburg, BK.) It was a tiny little space, even for a tiny little lady.
A couple of years later I saw her after work in a park in Chelsea. And a year later I would begin to watch from a distance as she played Prospect Park, Jimmy Fallon, Jay Leno. . .
Jared gave me this record before it ever came out. For free.
