Booker T. Jones
"I was extremely fortunate to live around the corner from a recording
studio and to be chosen to have a paper route to make enough money to
pay for the music lessons. I was one of the chosen few to have a job and
to walk through the curtain at Stax Records was just an amazing thing
for me to do at age 14."
Booker T Jones - Like Stevie Wonder, Booker T. Jones (that’s his full name - the T doesn’t actually stand for anything) was a child prodigy. He played piano, sax, oboe, trumpet and trombone as a youth and was the organist at his church.
At age 16, he played sax on Cause I Love You, a hit single for Satellite Records. Satellite would give way to Stax, and Booker T. Jones would find himself as a session player with Donald ‘Duck’ Dunn and Steve ‘The Colonel’ Cropper, with whom he would cut the track Green Onions and the album of the same name. Wikipedia
