The Soul Providers featuring Sharon Jones LIVE in 1999

This is a nice gem.

Jelly Jazz has put up a live set from an early incarnation of what would become Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings.

Here’s the blurb from Jelly Jazz:

“A slice of classic Jelly Jazz history with the full live performance of The Soul Providers featuring Sharon Jones (aka Sharon Jones & the Dap-kings) from Jelly Jazz’s 6th Birthday Party, The Dance Academy, Plymouth, May 1999! A night that surely rates as one of the absolute best from 18 years of Jelly Jazz. Sharon Jones & The Dap-kings have gone on to massive international fame, touring with Prince and many other superstars. This performance was her very first show in England, and we are so proud to have put them on first, enjoy!”
