Booker T. Jones – 7:00 PM
Friday, March 2, 2018 @ 7:00 PM
It can be easily 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 & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Musicians Hall of Fame inductee, Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient and four-time Grammy-winner pushed the genre’s boundaries, refined it to its essence and then introduced it to the nation. Outside of the band, Jones made the charts as a solo artist also lent his trademark keyboards to many artists ranging in genre from Ray Charles to Neil Young. He also produced albums for Rita Coolidge, Bill Withers, Willie Nelson’s Stardust and more. Jones’ latest album, Sound The Alarm, 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. and others.
