Soul music luminary Booker T. Jones stopped by the LifeMinute Studios last month. The legendary artist was in town with students from the Stax Music Academy and its Executive Director Pat Mitchell Worley for a special performance at Lincoln Center.
The Stax Music Academy after-school and summer music programs keep the flame of Stax Records alive with today’s youth. The institute also provides professional and mental wellness counseling to its families. It’s the only music institute in the world focusing on the musical art form created at Stax in the 1960s and 70s.
Booker T. also regaled us with stories from his more than seven decades in the music industry and the iconic Stax Records, and working with other musical greats such as Otis Redding, Isaac Hayes, the Staple Singers, Sam & Dave, Willie Nelson, and hundreds more.
This is a LifeMinute with Booker T. Jones.
