Wikipedia : This day (November 12, 1944), in Memphis, Tennessee, is born Booker T.Jones, singer, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and frontman of the band Booker T. and the MGs,

Official Web Site : Wandering to nearby Beale Street, the Harlem of the South, Booker stood outside of Club Handy and listened, tuned to what he was too young to go inside and see: Blind Oscar working the Hammond organ, coaxing new sounds from it like a Delta farmer urging his mule to furrow one more cotton row, to till one more field—getting more from the instrument than can those who don’t know it intimately.

The Rosebud Agency : 2010 GRAMMY Winner for Potato Hole (Best Pop Instrumental Album) and Nominee for featured track from that album, Warped Sister (Best Rock Instrumental Performance)

@last.fm : While still in high school, Jones wrote the group’s instrumental “Green Onions”, which not only became a hit in 1962, but remains an enduring classic more than 40 years later.

@Discogs : Founding member of Stax’ in-house band Booker T & The MG’s in 1962. He left Booker T & The MG’s and the label in 1970, to embark on a career as a producer and solo artist.
