BOOKER T JONES - ROAD FROM MEMPHIS - CD New

Anti/Epitaph

THE ROAD FROM MEMPHIS is classic Memphis soul, and classic Booker in the tradition of "Green Onions," but beyond that it is the story of a sound, and how Booker, working with the inheritors of his sound, is keeping a tradition alive. Along for the ride are vocalists Matt Berninger of the National, Yim Yames of My Morning Jacket, Sharon Jones, Lou Reed, and Booker himself, telling the story of how the funk/soul sound that Booker helped invent spiraled out from Memphis, touching the Roots hometown of Philadelphia, New York and Detroit.
