Booker T. ‘Sound The Alarm’

Keyboard legend Booker T. returns to the recently reactivated Stax Records – the place where he created his signature sound in the 60s and 70s playing on recordings by Otis Redding, Sam & Dave and many others including his own band Booker T. & the MG’s. ‘Sound The Alarm’ is out via Stax / Concord Records on June 25th and it features a host of fine musicians including Anthony Hamilton, Raphael Saadiq, Estelle, Vintage Trouble, Luke James and James Jay Picton.

The lead single ‘Sound The Alarm’ featuring singer Mayer Hawthorne sets up the album well – taking things back to his Memphis roots whilst remaining right here in the 21st century in a bid to attract new younger fans to his brand of gritty soul and R&B.
