Description
Trumpet legend Wayne Jackson is a 2012 Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient for his work along with saxophone partner, Andrew Love, as The Memphis Horns. He has performed on 83 gold and platinum records, 52 number ones and 15 Grammy winners. His signature sound can be heard on such iconic classics as "Let's Stay Together," "Sweet Caroline," "Dock of the Bay," "Hold On I'm Comin'," "Angel of Harlem," "Mustang Sally," "Soul Man," "Suspicious Minds," "Roll With It," "Think," "Sledgehammer," "Knock On Wood" and hundreds more. Jackson's first book, "In My Wildest Dreams - Take 1," opens during a recording session at Sting's home studio where he began to get the idea for the book. He then takes the reader back to his beginnings in West Memphis, Arkansas, where he blew his way out of the cotton patch and across the river to Memphis, Tennessee, into the pages of music history. Featuring stories from the beginning of his magical career, "Take 1" is a wild and fun ride through the 1960s as Jackson recalls his start with The Mar-Keys (of "Last Night" fame), his years as a member of the Stax Records house band and his early friendship with lifelong saxophone partner, Andrew Love. He takes the reader behind the scenes of the famous 1967 Stax/Volt tour of Europe and into the recording studio with Elvis, Otis Redding and many more. From the Monterey Pop Festival to the frenetic Memphis studio and club scene, you will think you were there. The book also features a bonus section titled, "On The Record With Wayne," where Jackson shares comments about many of the songs he has played on and artists he has worked with. "In My Wildest Dreams-Take 1" is truly an All Access Pass to the backstage of 1960s music history.
