The recently reactivated Stax label is the perfect platform for legendary organist Booker T and on ‘Sound the Alarm’ the veteran musician and producer is joined by a host of younger artists including Estelle, Anthony Hamilton, Mayer Hawthorne plus Raphael Saadiq and Sheila E. The great ‘All Over The Place’ features the vocals of Luke James and an infectious sneaking b-line (sounds like a single in the waiting) ‘Broken Heart’ is a wonderful southern crossover number while the fantastic Anthony Hamilton lead ‘Gently’ has more than a few brushes with Memphis gospel. ‘Watch You Sleeping’ is also another high point. There’s even a stomping, straight-up Northern Soul moment in Fun, whilst ’66 Impala’ feat. Pucho Sanchez and Sheila E takes things into gritty, hard Latin instrumental territory: would make an amazing double-sided 45!
