Al Jackson Jr. is becoming one of my favorite drummers. The guitar player in my new band is really into the Stax records sounds, and when I was studying up on the song below (one of the covers we're doing) I realized Al Jackson played on so many songs that I always liked. The drum part in 'Hold On' is so relentlessly grooving--you can hear the roots of future RnB and rap beats. So killer. Every time I use the search function on this site it seems unproductive, so I thought I'd start an Al Jackson appreciation thread. Any info, songs, etc. is appreciated. I know about the Booker T and MGs stuff but Jackson did a lot of drumming in his relatively short time.
