VIDEO: Sharon Jones – Game Gets Old: the Trilogy
by Winston "Stone" Ford
It’s been a world wind trip for Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings since we first interviewed them all the way back in 2006, and since then they have toured the world, worked with Denzel and Amy Winehouse, and become a touring staple. On the heels of their European Tour, the group is taking a more artistic approach tho their next video, flipping the concept with this three part Philip Di Fiore directed short film Game Gets Old: the Trilogy.
Based on the visual style of Blue Note album covers, De Fiore skillfully blends the art of Francis Wolff and Reid Miles into the Daptone universe. I’m loving the decidely retro feel of the treatment, and it’s hands down better than just an average music video. You’re welcome.
