Booker T. Jones follows back-to-back Grammy wins for his previous two albums with Sound The Alarm on Stax/Concord Music Group. This marks Booker s return to Stax, a label revered for the gritty soul sound he helped create with Memphis first integrated band in the early '60s, and features collaborations with some of the finest talents in modern soul and R&B including Mayer Hawthorne, Anthony Hamilton, Vintage Trouble, Estelle, Gary Clark, Jr., Luke James and more.

Booker T wrote or co-wrote all 12 songs on Sound The Alarm. He co-produced the album with brothers Bobby Ross and Issiah IZ Avila, who have worked with Usher and Mary J. Blige. The Avila brothers also play in the rhythm section on most of the tracks. Booker T has won four Grammy Awards including a Lifetime Achievement Award and is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. As a producer, he has helmed sessions for million sellers, including Bill Withers debut album Just As I Am, and Willie Nelson's Stardust. He's written and/or played on some of the most enduring songs of all time including "Green Onions," "Sittin On The Dock Of The Bay" and "Born Under A Bad Sign."

Reviewer: old and lonely
Sonics and recording--couldn't be better.

Modern soul music--not for me unfortunately

If you are expecting high-energy music as found on the original albums, which I love, this one is not for you.
