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.

Jackson's third and final book, "In My Wildest Dreams - Take 3," picks up in the Eighties as Jackson has adjusted to his new life in Nashville, trading in limos and rock and roll for a billybus and state fair grounds on tour with country music legend Marty Robbins. But the phone rings, and once again, Jackson is catapulted back to the top with his unforgettable horn lines on Peter Gabriel's groundbreaking song, "Sledgehammer." What follows is a wild ride through the top of the music business as Jackson recalls stories from his days on tour with Jimmy Buffett and Robert Cray, his Italian stardom and his whirlwind adventures back home in Nashville and Memphis. From performing on stage at the Grand Ole Opry, to recording with Neil Young, to accepting the Grammy, 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 3" is truly an All Access Pass to the backstage of music history 1980s to the present.
