Description
In the 1960s, Booker T. Jones's organ grooves epitomized the hit sounds of Memphis's Stax Records. But the R&B master has not faded away by any means: abetted on this new release by Gary Clark Jr., Mayer Hawthorne, Anthony Hamilton, Estelle, Sheila E, and his musical offspring Ted Jones on guitar, Booker T pumps out future classics like "Father Son Blues" and "66 Impala" that are soulful anthems from first note to last.

"His organ pops with the same ripeness that it did on Booker T. and the MGs' 1962 hit 'Green Onions.' However, now he's teamed up with a handful of contemporary collaborators … to help him push the blues and R&B he built his storied career on…. On opener 'Sound the Alarm,' the lead guitar riff and Hawthorne's vocals slink around snappy percussion, and 'Fun' finds Jones constructing a thumping piece of instrumental pop blues. Estelle shows up on the soulful atmospheric stomper 'Can't Wait,' while album highlight 'Austin City Blues' finds hotshot guitarist Clark Jr. weaving licks with ease around the heavenly wail of Jones' organ."—Rolling Stone
