Wayne Jackson (trumpet, trombone) and Andrew Love (tenor saxophone) are The Memphis Horns. It could be that you don't know their names (although highly improbable) but you sure as hell know their music. They played with Otis Redding, Al Green, Etta James, Bobby Womack, Robert Cray, almost anything that STAX produced - the list is endless. Their music IS magic. Much more than just a few horns tooting in the background, these two marvellous musicians created a feeling, fun, sadness, all that and more with their terrific playing. You can pick them out instantly. What great talents, what creativity!!! Fabulous!!! On this recording they invited a few old friends to participate to recreate that good ol' feeling. WAIT! Don't think this is old or washed out! It'll make you move in a second - guaranteed! A smile appears on your face the moment you hear Mavis Staples do Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa (Sad Song), you hurt when listening to the most amazing version of I've Been Loving You Too Long by Warren Haynes (terrific interpretation, marvellous guitar, my favorite on this one), you hope with William Bell's great Holding On To Love or Bobby Womack's terrific Somebody Have Mercy. The love for the music jumps off the record. And it's not just the way they do it, rather spontaneously, or the great guests (most of the above plus Isaac Hayes, Leon Russell and many more). What I love most is the care for detail in The Memphis Horns' playing AND by all the terrific musicians on this recording. Listen to the background singers: Jacqueline Johnson and Jacquelyn Reddick, Jack Holder and Michael Tales' guitars, Ernest Williamson's keys, Dywane Thomas' bass, Steve Potts' drums etc. etc. Just get it - and together with me hope for another one soon!
