Dec. 6th Booker T. Jones played SPACE for two sets. The second 90 minute set included Jones biggest hit with his group Booker T. and the M.G.’s “Green Onions,” and covers of Jimi Hendrix’s “Hey Joe,” Bob Dylan’s “Knockin’ On Heavens Door,” and closed with B.B. King’s “The Thrill Is Gone.” Jones also played two songs from his newly released album “Sound the Alarm,” which were “Fun,” and “66 Impala.” Hearing Jones signature B3 playing alone made the show well worth it. Of course his band of Vernon “Ice” Black (guitar), Darian Gray (drums), and Melvin Brannon Jr. (bass) was incredible considering that Jones has played with many of the greatest musicians and artists over the last 50+ years. Not only did we get to see Jones on the organ, but also got to see his great guitar playing and vocals. The best part about seeing a show at SPACE is seeing legendary artists at an intimate venue that always sounds great.

With the M.G.’s, Jones released 15 albums as well as playing on numerous others by artists such as Wilson Pickett, Otis Redding, Bill Withers, and Sam & Dave as the house band for Stax. As a solo artist Jones has released 10 albums. Last year marked the 50th anniversary of the release of the first album of Booker T. and the M.G.’s “Green Onions.” Booker T. and The M.G.’s have received numerous honors including being inducted into the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame in 1992, Musicians Hall of Fame in 2008, and the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007. Last year Jones received his 4th Grammy Award.
