Saxophonist Maceo Parker embodies the legacy of soul and funk music like no other musician can. Always at the forefront, Maceo has been a common thread in the history of funk, helping to pioneer the sound of the genre in collaborations alongside seminal icons such as James Brown, George Clinton and Prince, all the while honing his own signature brand of showmanship.
“Maceo Parker, who joined James Brown’s band in 1964 and became one of its great anchors, is a lancing, quick-phrasing alto saxophone blazer, and his band performs a fizzy mixture of hard-driving funk and swing. It’s party music from start to finish.” -The New York Times.
