Wayne Jackson (born November 24, 1941) in West Memphis, AR, is an American soul and R&B musician, playing the trumpet in the Mar-Keys, in the house band at Stax Records and later as one of the The Memphis Horns, "arguably the greatest soul horn section ever".
After the years recording at Stax, they incorporated themselves into The Memphis Horns and began freelancing, recording on sessions for such artists as Neil Diamond, Elvis Presley, Al Green and Dusty Springfield. The duo also toured with The Doobie Brothers, Jimmy Buffett, Robert Cray and numerous other performers.
