Booker T. Jones To Jam Live From Daryl Hall's House This Friday
In June, Daryl and Booker T. were joined by R&B breakthrough artist Mayer Hawthorne, while this month's 44th installment of the Webby and MTV O Music award-winning Internet series, which last year made its broadcast debut on WGN America to impressive ratings, will feature Hall and Jones performing some of their most memorable songs.
The Memphis-born Booker T. Jones was honored with induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and a Grammy lifetime achievement award for his genre-defining Hammond B-3 organ work with the renowned Stax Records group Booker T and the MGs alongside guitarist Steve Cropper, bassist Donald "Duck" Dun and Al Jackson Jr. His new solo album, The Road from Memphis, which was released in May on Anti- Records, features cameos by Lou Reed, My Morning Jacket's Jim James and Sharon Jones. The L.A. Times said, "Jones makes a quietly convincing case that when it comes to soul music, all roads do seem to lead to Memphis." Booker T., who has collaborated with a who's-who of popular music greats, including Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Bill Withers, Rufus Thomas, Carla Thomas, Neil Young, Stephen Stills and Willie Nelson, among many others, had a blast playing with Daryl on the show.
