This set reveals Jones' musical odyssey from the early days in Memphis to the places that influenced his thought and playing: the soul sounds that emerged from Detroit, Philly, and Los Angeles; all along a labyrinthine, groove-laden path into the present day. He enlisted the Roots - the seemingly ubiquitous go-to house band of the 21st century - with Amhir ?uestlove Thompson and Rob Schnapf as co-producers, with Dap-Kings' Gabriel Roth engineering. The Road from Memphis is loaded with treats: Detroit Funk Brother Dennis Coffey adds his trademark wah-wah and the Roots' Captain.

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.
