The Bronx - Booker T. Jones

from the album The Road to Memphis (2011)

This song starts with the slow groove of Booker T's B3 over a snare cadence.  Then enters some tasteful lead guitar.  The tones blend perfectly.  This vibe continues for 2 minutes 4 seconds when Lou Reed's voice unexpectedly enters with "The Bronx gets its flavor from the streets".  Lou Reed's vocal and Booker T. Jones organ are two classic sounds that combine with a hypnotic punch.  I can't stop listening.
