About the Program

Groundbreaking soul and R&B artist Booker T. Jones occupies an important place in the history of American music. At age seventeen, he fronted the seminal Memphis soul band Booker T. and the M.G.’s—a rare integrated group of musicians that served as the house band for Stax Records, working with the likes of Otis Redding, Bill Withers, and Wilson Pickett. Join Jones through a “Stax Revue” of iconic songs that illuminate an extraordinary career spanning nearly sixty years.
