Daptone Records has been leading the resurgence of classic soul since its inception in 2001. The label, co-created by bassist Gabriel Roth (AKA Bosco Mann), is celebrating its 20th anniversary with the release of a 2-disc live album.
We were saddened to learn of Sharon Jones passing on Friday. Here’s the powerhouse soul singer with her Dap-Kings performing Bobby “Blue” Bland’s “Road of Broken Hearted Men” live in Austin during NPR’s SXSW Showcase. Gabriel Roth, aka Bosco Mann lays down the low end in this 2010 performance. RIP, Ms. Jones.
Now here’s a sweet gig. Gabriel Roth, aka Bosco Mann, lays down a big soulful bass line for Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings in this clip from the 2010 SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas. Does it get any cooler than this?
