"With anything, we don't like to hold onto anything," Jackson said. "I'm the opposite of that, I'm always saving anything. The younger generation, if it doesn't fit, they get something new or buy it on the internet. There's no thinking about using it later on, they toss it."
Over the years, the Memphis Horns have played on more than 15 Grammy-nominated tracks, "but this will be the first time we're being recognized," Mr. Jackson said.
