I'm actually more of a 'grinch' around this time of year, but a couple of tunes that always warm me up: Otis Redding "Merry Christmas Baby", James Brown "Santa Claus, Go Straight to the Ghetto" ... and I've always really enjoyed the Phil Spector Christmas Album, despite Phil being a little ... uhhh ... odd to say the least.

This evening, I was lucky enough to be able to attend Sharon Jones' memorial service at the Brown Memorial Baptist Church in Brooklyn, NY.

Really wish I could have made the memorial. Love Sharon! Started seeing her and the dap kings from their very first shows..even got a kiss from her one new years when she opened for Antibalas at a new years loft party.

@Mbass718 A kiss?! I'm jealous! She was one of my favorite performers I have ever seen. Such an incredible loss to the music community <3

Yea that was sweet getting a kiss from her at midnight. This was before they were international stars but to me it was like getting a kiss from Aretha or Etta James. Her loss hit me hard!! I wrote daptone records about what she meant to me and the world and they sent back a really nice letter thanking me. Thought she'd be singing and dancing for years to come. It still feels weird that she's gone. The memorial must have been a great service!
