It can be argued that it was Booker T. Jones who set the cast for modern soul music and is largely responsible for its rise and enduring popularity. On classic Stax hits like ‘Green Onions’, ‘Hang ‘Em High’, ‘Time Is Tight’ and ‘Melting Pot’ the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Musicians Hall of Fame inductee, GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award recipient and winner of four GRAMMY Awards pushed the music’s boundaries, refined it to its essence and then injected it into the nation’s bloodstream.

Booker won back to back GRAMMY AWARDS in the category Best Pop Instrumental Album for his 2011 release The Road From Memphis where he is backed by Hip Hop band The Roots and for the 2009 album Potato Hole which features guests Neil Young and Drive By Truckers.

Booker’s current album Sound The Alarm (Stax/Concord) is critically acclaimed and features collaborations with some of the finest talents in modern soul and R&B including Mayer Hawthorne, Anthony Hamilton, Vintage Trouble, Estelle, Gary Clark, Jr., Luke James and more.
 

“Booker T. unleashes the blues on Sound the Alarm.” Rolling Stone

“With…Sound the Alarm marking a brilliant return to Stax Records after 40 years, Jones is currently on tour. Catch him if you can, and change your plans to make it if you think you can’t.” No Depression
