Just the other day I featured Naomi Shelton doing this tune, “Humble Me”, from her newest album “Cold World”. Today it’s Sharon Jones’ turn. She recorded this song for her amazing 2007 record “100 Days, 100 Nights”. It’s still a classic modern soul album in my eyes and this track has a piano line written by Sharon Jones in the studio that really nails the gospel feel to the song perfectly.
While she has surely done plenty of great music since, going back to this record now feels like it’s some of her best work she’s ever done.
