EDITORS’ NOTES

On Holiday Soul Party, Sharon Jones hosts one of the season’s most inclusive celebrations: The record opens with a day-by-day Hanukkah breakdown, and later, "World of Love" prays for interfaith unity. But the real common denominator is The Dap-Kings' mastery of snow-melting retro-funk grooves. Few will be able to resist their lively interpretations of classics like "White Christmas" or originals like the Stax-style "Ain't No Chimneys in the Projects." Put it this way: Jones' "Little Drummer Boy" plays a breakbeat.
