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 Store

Format: Audio CD
Collaborative albums are the order of the day and Booker T Jones uses his return to the Stax label with a range of musical partners to recreate some of those sounds of the sixties with which his name is irrevocably linked. He of course started as a session saxophonist on the label while it was still Satellite Records at age 16 in 1960. Subsequently his band The MGs went on to become Stax's house band and were last seen in person by your reviewer in Finsbury Park in 1993 supporting Neil Young who did a a surprisingly good version of "Sitting on the dock of the bay" as an encore. In this new album "Sound the alarm" he calls in a range of artists in support of his muse and they serve up a generally solid and enjoyable record. At the recording desk are the Avila Brothers who seek to spice up Booker T in a set of blues tinged soulful song, a task in which they largely succeed.

In his recent collaboration with Buddy Guy the hotshot guitarist Gary Clark Jr succumbed to a little to much reverence. Here with Booker T his playing is economical but absolutely spot on as he weaves around the dominant Hammond organ on "Austin City Blues". Of all the instrumental collaborations on the album this is the best by far as it sticks to the knitting in terms of all the great things you associate with Booker T. Later there is another soulful partnership with his son Ted Jones on traditional old school work out of "Father and son blues" and let us hope they determine to work together more often if this is the result. Other instrumentals like the Motown flavoured "Fun" recall past glories and that old keyboard technique that graced "Green Onions" stands in all its glory. On the vocal collaborations the moving ballad "Broken Heart" has a great singing lead with Jay James and a nice seventies ambiance.

Why did I buy this? It's Booker T, of course! How can anybody go wrong, if you buy his work you already know his music - The Sound of Stax. This CD isn't like the last couple though, it's different and yes different for one reason. On first listening I was sure Booker T and the MGs were playing together again. Not like they were, but the 1960s bought into the new century. Subtle, but it's there, Stax in 2013. Gave a man in his 60s a warm feeling. Sound the Alarm, we're back!

Best Booker T album in a long time full of talent. No Steve Cropper but all the musicians that appear are talented . There is still no sound like a Hamond B3 ind the hands of a master. !!

Not a duff track on the album, with some wonderful varied vocals on some tracks and excellent Booker T instrumentals.

Mr. Jones is chosing some excellent personnel to keep the quality so top notch. 50 years in the spotlight and still one of the best in music.
