If you don’t recognize the name, you probably recognize the music (“Green Onions” is a staple on soundtracks); and if you still don’t recognize him, here’s your chance to get to know Booker T. Jones.
Jones released The Road from Memphis in early May and the track “Progress” is available free from Amazon.
The track features Yim Yames (Jim James) from My Morning Jacket on vocals.
Get it. Listen to it. Like it. It’s a perfect break from that other stuff you’re listening to.
