In this episode: Sharon Jones is one of soul music’s most magnetic and energetic stars. But last year, she was diagnosed with cancer – and it almost took her life. Now, seven months after it was announced that her cancer was in remission, she’s back and on the road again with her band, The Dap-Kings. She talks her about her treatment and her upcoming VH1 special, and listen to some of her most recent album Give The People What They Want.

Then: Ann Delisi of WDET in Detroit shares a Summer ’94-themed playlist of three of her favorite songs from Jeff Buckley, Massive Attack and Beck.

And: Irish band Bell X1 performs songs from its latest album, Chop Chop, in the Soundcheck studio.

Guests:

Bell X1, Ann Delisi and Sharon Jones

Sharon Jones: Back On Her Feet, And Back On The Road

Sharon Jones is known for her vintage soul sound and her irrepressible on-stage energy. But a recent battle with cancer put her career on hold — and made her doubt that she'd ever sing again. Jones talks about that struggle, and about her latest album, Give the People What They Want.

Arto Lindsay, 'Personagem'

 

GIG: Tonight at 8pm at Le Poisson Rouge.

During a long career, the musician and producer Arto Lindsay has worked in so many different styles, it was perfectly reasonable to call his new CD retrospective The Encyclopedia of Arto. A member of New York’s so-called “No Wave” scene of the 1970's, Lindsay is a pioneer of modern experimental music, while embracing jazz, funk and the sounds of his Brazilian homeland. Here’s the song “Personagem.”
