As part of the BBC Proms 2017 season, Jools Holland and His Rhythm & Blues Orchestra hosted a late night Stax Prom, celebrating the legacy of the pioneering recording company based in Memphis, Tennessee, that effectively defined Southern Soul music in the Sixties.

This landmark concert saw Sir Tom Jones’ take to the stage making his BBC Proms debut, and it’s safe to say he went down a storm with this soul-loving audience!

‘…the highlight was Cropper, Booker T and Sir Tom performing a stripped back, spine-tingling version of Redding’s Dock of the Bay, in which Cropper’s guitar seemed to dance and ripple around Jones’s big, heartfelt vocal. Cropper mouthed “Wow!” at the end, and I suspect everyone watching felt the same.’ ★★★★
