The Recording Academy Statement re: Andrew Love

Recording Academy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Andrew Love, was a celebrated tenor saxophone player and prominent member of The Memphis Horns.® As arguably the most famous horn section of all time, the Memphis Horns were a vital part of the Stax Records and Southern soul sound, and they played with such major artists as Aretha Franklin, Elvis Presley, Otis Redding, and many more, injecting a shot of Memphis soul into hundreds of recordings during their 40-year career. Our deepest sympathies extend to Love’s family, friends, and the larger music community. His musical impact will live on for generations to come.
