Booker T. has come full circle. In the early 1960s, the young, Hammond B3 prodigy got his start with the legendary soul-R&B label, Stax. Today, he’s commemorating the incredible music that poured from those records with a tour to mark 50 years of sweet, soul music. His infectious songs, hits like “Green Onions,” “Time is Tight,” and “Born Under A Bad Sign,” are as embedded in our psyches as our own names. Booker T. Jones is an in-demand organist who has played with everyone from Ray Charles to Neil Young, Otis Redding to Rancid, and he’s earned a rack of Grammys for his contributions to the music that makes us move. He’ll pay musical tribute to Stax acts Sam & Dave, Otis Redding and Albert King with energy and respect. You won’t be sitting for long. He’s a legend, straight up. Nothing more needs to be said.
