Driving Ms. Sharon jones

On Sunday, Jan 25, 2009 I had the pleasure of driving the remarkable and outstanding singer and performer, Sharon Jones. I was driving her to an interview she was scheduled to attend at KJAZZ out here in West Los Angeles. My good friend Miles Perlich hosts a show for KJAZZ called United Groove on Saturdays from 10p - 12p. He called me out of the blue with favor and there was now way I was going to turn that down. By the way, Miles' show is the only one, I repeat the only show I know of that gives LA the real taste of funk, raregroove, latin jazz, and whatever Miles brings out of his deep crates. But back to Ms. Jones, she was every bit a lady, a talker, and endless well of energy that she is on stage. I didn't talk much just adding a phrase here and there, I mean who can compete with a stick of dynamite like Sharon! I had a great time driving her and talking. I brought her to the station where she met Miles and took a few picture of them for publicity. I totally forgot to take one of myself but oh many people can say they met Sharon in person and drove her to a show? Thanks Miles!

Long Live Sharon Jones, the new Queen of Soul!
