The Dap-Kings may not be a household name, but you likely already know them: They backed the late soul diva Amy Winehouse on her tremendously successful “Rehab” from Back to Black — which, of course, was way better than just “Rehab.” Like Motown’s Funk Brothers, who backed pretty much everyone on the label in the ’60s, the Dap-Kings have since set themselves up to be the backing band that everyone in new soul wants behind them. What we get with Jones is more of what Winehouse had to offer, but without the paparazzi.
