The Passing of Andrew Love
“The Passing of Andrew Love April 12 2012…What can I say about my best friend Andrew Love? He was the best man I knew. He was a great husband and father. He was a fabulous musician and he left behind for us a wealth of recorded saxophone so we can continue to be amazed by him. How fortuitous of God to have put the two of us together. The first time I heard Andrew play was at the Manhattan Club with the Willie Mitchell band. I knew we would be perfect together. He had a big tone and I had a big tone. And I knew that they would blend in the the most natural beautiful way. We loved to laugh together. We laughed and traveled all over the world together making records with artists of all genres. Andrew and I knew we were blessed beyond most people. We got to do what we loved everyday and share our unique gifts. It all paid off this year with The Memphis Horns receiving the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.
I will miss him.”
- Wayne Jackson of the Memphis Horns
