Booker T. Jones

When: Wed., Feb. 25, 8 p.m. 2015

The career of multi-instrumentalist Booker T. Jones dates back to the early ‘60s when he got a gig as a session musician at Satellilte (soon to be Stax Records) in Memphis. When he was 16, he played saxophone on “’Cause I Love You” and launched a career. He formed the MGs and recorded the group's classic organ-propelled “Green Onions.” Jones, who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in 1992, started his tour in Europe about a month ago but is only playing a handful of dates. Expect to hear music from his entire career as he says he play songs he recorded with the M.G.s as well as music from his solo albums. (Niesel)
