Kirkland Performance Center presents…
Evening with Booker T. Jones
Friday, November 8, 2019 – 8:00PM
All Seats: $70.00
Booker T, a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductee, winner of four GRAMMY Awards and recipient of a GRAMMY Award for Lifetime Achievement perform the songs that make up the fabric of his musical identity and material from his new album Note By Note. Booker T. & the M.G.’s staples like “Green Onions” are woven into defining moments from his journey after Stax, when he produced and recorded with artists as diverse as Bill Withers, Willie Nelson, and Carlos Santana. The evening culminates with new original music, highlighting the soaring guitar and vocals of his son and collaborator Teddy Jones. After the show, Booker T will greet fans and sign copies of his memoir Time is Tight and new album Note By Note.
Booker T. will be doing a book signing in the lobby after the performance. His memoir Time Is Tight will be on sale before and after his performance, so you can purchase a copy and get it signed by him.
“In a new memoir, Time Is Tight: My Life, Note by Note, the Stax studio wizard and acclaimed producer tells his own story and finds his voice. … The result emphasizes not only his Memphis roots and role in Stax’s reinvention of R&B but his second act here in Los Angeles — as a wide-ranging session man and producer who remains, in his eighth decade, a sought-after sonic guru.” – The New York Times
