Living Legend

Booker T Jones is a true living legend that pioneered the Hammond B3 in popular soul music.  He is still has the chops that he is known for in songs such as "green onions" that he recorded with Booker T and The MG's as well as songs he has written for others most noteworthy would be "born under a bad sign" he wrote for Albert King.  Most recently appearing on npr music's tiny desk concerts, and live from daryl's house, Jones is shows he still has a certain charisma and humility that has made him the legend he is today! Any student of pop music owes Mr. Jones a debt of thanks since he paved the way! http://youtu.be/rh9KDzNkpSI   Hit this link for his show on npr music's tiny desk concert...you will be amazed.  After that, go over to Daryl's House!  As always, enjoy, share, repeat!
