Booker T on BBC4 – TONIGHT
Posted on: Monday, Sep 14, 2009
From the 2009 Cambridge Folk Festival on BBC4 at 19.30.
Hammond B3 organ alchemist Booker T Jones demonstrates why he is considered one of America’s most prolific, distinguished and instantly-recognisable musical forces.
Accompanied by a rocking band which includes members of the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Booker T’s resulting vibrant and powerful sound delights the Cambridge crowd. Classics such as Green Onions are performed alongside tracks with a new twist, like Hip Hug Her which features a rap from drummer Darian Gray.
Booker T is at the peak of a renewed creative phase in his storied career, with a new album on release, and this show certainly reaffirms the fact.
Repeated Tues in the early hours.
