Booker T. Jones – May 10, 2012

Booker T. Jones  -  Brooklyn Bridge Park  -  May 10, 2012

Jones is the Booker T. of the MG’s and others, having been in the band of a zillion hits since the early 1960′s.  While he spent most of his time on the Hammond B-3, he did get out and play some guitar, and also did credible vocals on a few numbers.  The guitar of “Ice” Black seemed unfamiliar, and it turns out that he designed and built it himself!  The opener was DJ Rich Medina; while I dug his stuff, there is a limit (exceeded here) to my appreciation of a very loud human boombox, which I estimate at 45 minutes.  He signed “April”, causing wonder and envy of the lifestyle so casual in accepting the flip of the calendar page.
