Stax Records

One of the greatest R&B labels ever. Out of Memphis the label was home to such renown acts as Otis Redding, Booker T. & The M.G.'s, Sam and Dave, Rufus Thomas, The Staples Singers, Isaac Hayes, Carla Thomas, Eddie Floyd and William Bell. Unlike the polished pop soul of Motown, Stax laid it on thick with depth and grit backed by the blazing house band of Booker T. & The M.G.'s. Though the label featured some of R&B's greatest voices they went under in 1976.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
