Booker T. Jones may be new to our pages but, as a legendary Stax Records session musician and the man who (with the help of his M.G.‘s) brought us such classics as Green Onions, he really needs no introduction. Which means that last sentence was completely superfluous—my bad. On Sound the Alarm, the second single and title track off his forthcoming solo set, the headliner’s bluesy guitar riffs, fingersnap-laced percussion and (of course) legendary Hammond organ back smooth, yet fiery verses from young soul star Mayer Hawthone. Booker T.‘s next album, featuring appearances by Anthony Hamilton, Estelle, Sheila E. and many more notable artists, has yet to receive a solid drop date from the label brass. While you wait for further details, why not take a listen to Hawthone’s latest effort, Her Favorite Song?
