Booker T. Jones & the Tiny Desk

 "I'm pretty sure this is the coolest thing we've ever done behind the Tiny Desk." – Bob Boilen

Booker T. Jones was recently featured on his Hammond B3 organ for NPR's Tiny Desk concert series. This stripped down video series is a personal favorite of mine for its raw and personal qualities, but it also should be commended for its focus on all music – no genre withstanding. What I enjoy most about Booker T. is the look of sheer joy that he exudes while performing his opening piece "Green Onions." The man wrote this song when he was seventeen and he is still in love with it. We are all lucky to be able to share in his passion. The set list continues on with performances of Born Under a Bad Sign, and Down in Memphis. If you're not already obsessed with this concert series, reset your priorities and dig the archives, you'll like what you find.
