Legendary STAX artist Booker T. Jones will join the MSO and the Soulsville Charter School in a night highlighting the rich heritage of Memphis music. Those traditions took a new turn in 1961 when Satellite Records was renamed STAX and began issuing a new Southern Soul sound by artists such as Otis Redding and Booker T. and the M.G.’s. Popular music was changed forever.
