Booker T. Jones is a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, and arguably the most famous Hammond B3 player in history. As leader of the legendary Booker T. and the MGs, this pillar of soul music collaborated with Otis Redding, Albert King, and more during his tenure at Stax Records.

Since then, Booker has lent his trademark keyboard chops to and produced classic albums such as Willie Nelson’s multi-platinum hit Stardust and Bill Withers’ Just As I Am featuring the hit song Ain’t No Sunshine.

Both Booker’s 2009 solo release Potato Hole and his 2011 solo release The Road From Memphis won GRAMMY Awards for Best Pop Instrumental Album. In 2013 Booker released Sound The Alarm, marking a return to Stax Records after 40 years.

In 2016, Booker debuted his live show Booker T. Presents: A Stax Revue, working with new talent to create a show that reflects the heart and soul of Stax Records. Most recently, Booker released his memoire, Time is Tight, and an accompanying album Note by Note.

Booker is currently working on a new recording project and touring worldwide with his solo band.
