CD Review: Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings "Give the People What They Want"

Gabriel “Bosco Mann” Roth has carved out a gritty niche for himself as producer and bassist behind Brooklyn’s Dap-Kings; it’s reflected in the restrained, funky lines he pulls from his pillowy 1972 Carvin SB60, as well as the tube-warmed analog sound he gets on Daptone releases.

Gabriel “Bosco Mann” Roth has carved out a gritty niche for himself as producer and bassist behind Brooklyn’s Dap-Kings; it’s reflected in the restrained, funky lines he pulls from his pillowy 1972 Carvin SB60, as well as the tube-warmed analog sound he gets on Daptone releases. His latest with singer Sharon Jones (fresh from her victory over bile duct cancer) leans psych-soul, with Roth waxing more melodic and Macca-like on “Retreat!” and “Now I See” than you’ll ever hear him.
