Booker T. Jones's narration of his memoir is similar to the keyboard style he pioneered on the Hammond B3 organ: smooth, measured, and confident. Each chapter of this heartfelt memoir begins with an original organ riff, demonstrating the fertile spirit that shaped the Stax Records sound, created instrumental hits like "Green Onions," and attracted collaborators like Bob Dylan, Otis Redding, and Willie Nelson. Jones weathered many storms--for example, his record label compensated African-American musicians less than whites, and when his bandmate Al Jackson was murdered, there was no police investigation. But there is no resentment in this memoir, only a spiritual sense of gratitude. R.W.S. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2020]
