Biography

In Booker T. Jones, the seed was planted early. Not yet a teenager, he was already hauling his stack of newspapers to Phineas Newborn’s front yard where, while folding them for his after-school delivery route, he could listen to the jazz great practice piano. With those notes ringing in his head, he’d set out into the neighborhood, picking up the sound of the streets, the sound of ... Read more in Amazon's Booker T. & The MG's Store

Real ageless, Christmas music given the Booker T makeover!! Had this on vinyl 38 years ago - wore it out, managed to find a replacement - then when that finally wore out I was delighted to find it on CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Booker T. is coming to town 12 Dec 2003
By Johnny Heering - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is Booker T. and the MG's classic Christmas album. It is, of course, performed in their traditional soul instrumental style. If you are familiar with Booker T. and the MG's, you know what to expect. It is a lot of fun to listen to. One of the fun things about this album, is that they will play a few bars of another Christmas song during the song. For instance, "Silver Bells" features a few seconds of "Frosty the Snowman, and "We Three Kings" contains several seconds of "O Come All Ye Faithful". I would recommend this album to anyone who likes classic soul music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ahead of their time back in 1966 and still cool now 24 Nov 2007
By R. Kyle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Back in 1966 when the vinyl version of this CD first hit the streets, people were somewhat stunned at the jazzy instrumental treatment of Christmas traditionals. The CD is still very cool today. If you liked "Green Onions" and the other Booker T music back in the day, you're going to like this vintage CD. I was very surprised and pleased to see it available.

5.0 out of 5 stars Birth of the Christmas Cool 6 Jan 2000
By Thomas Wilk - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Wow. Booker T makes these standards sound as if they were written for a four-piece R&B band. The first two sounds you hear are Duck Dunn's driving bass and the light "shing-shing-shing" of jingle bells on the title track. As Duck's bass propels the rhythm forward, Booker slowly brings the organ in on melody, with Cropper's adding fills on rhythm guitar about halfway into the song. From that point on, this is the most laid-back, mellow, relaxing and just flat-out **cool** Christmas music you're likely to hear this side of Jimmy Smith's "Christmas Cookin'." or the Charlie Brown Christmas album. Absolutely get this record if you like Paul Desmond, Jimmy Smith, or Ben Webster; and if Booker T. is new to you, then this album may only stay on your CD player into March or April.

5.0 out of 5 stars The coolest Christmas album bar none 19 Dec 2000
By Greg Bower - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Not only is this a great Christmas album, I think it also has some of the best work that Booker T. and the MGs did as an ensemble. They hit amazing grooves on "Jingle Bells," "Winter Wonderland," and "Wish You a Merry Christmas." And on the second half of the CD, they get very soulful and mellow, with a very bluesy "Merry Christmas Baby" and a gorgeous, gospelish "Sweet Little Jesus Boy." This is sublime stuff that'll grow on you year after year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Holiday Album 10 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is fun Christmas music to enjoy while wrapping presents or untangling the tree lights. The original vinyl version has a different cover, showing hands on a keyboard, and if you own this original version & it's still in excellent condition it is worth upwards of $400. If instrumental versions of yuletide tunes is your bag, this comes highly recommended.
