Booker T. Jones / ブッカー・T・ジョーンズ - The Road From Memphis / ザ・ロード・フロム・メンフィス

Released:
Label: ソニー・ミュージックジャパンインターナショナル

アメリカテネシー州メンフィス出身のオルガニスト、ブッカー・T・ジョーンズの約2年ぶりのオリジナル・アルバム。ザ・ルーツのクエストラブがプロデュース。ルー・リード、ザ・ナショナルのマット・バーニンガー、マイ・モーニング・ジャケットのジム・ジェームス、シャロン・ジョーンズがゲスト参加、ローリン・ヒルのカヴァーも収録。

Produced by Jones with The Roots' ?uestlove and Rob Schnapf (Beck, Elliot Smith), 'Memphis' was recorded by Daptone Records mastermind Gabriel Roth with backing by The Roots. 'The Road from Memphis' refers not only to Booker T's journey but to the evolution of the soul music he helped invent as it traveled from Memphis to Detroit, Philadelphia and beyond. The music's many iterations are represented here with a broad range of guest vocalists including Matt Berninger of the National and Sharon Jones on "Representing Memphis," Yim Yames of My Morning Jacket on "Progress" and Lou Reed on "The Bronx." The album also features a rare vocal from Jones himself offering a first-hand look at his hometown on "Down in Memphis." Legendary motor-city guitarist Dennis Coffey contributes to the album as well.
