Description

"Parker talks with his sax, chatters away without a seeming care. It's a musical antidepressant, an antidote to dark days. ....firmed my belief that the world would be a better place if we all funked together."

-San Diego Reader

Maceo Parker: his name is synonymous with Funky Music, his pedigree impeccable; his band: the tightest little funk orchestra on earth.

Everyone knows by now that he's played with each and every leader of funk, his start with James Brown, which Maceo describes as " like being at University "; jumping aboard the Mothership with George Clinton; stretching out with Bootsy's Rubber Band. Heís the living, breathing pulse which connects the history of Funk in one golden thread. The cipher which unravels dance music down to its core.

His collaborations over the years performing or recording or both have included Ray Charles, Ani Difranco, James Taylor, De La Soul, Dave Matthews Band and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. His timeless sound has garnered him a fresh young fan base.

It is almost impossible to separate which came first, Maceo or the funk. The amazing P-funk Parker has been at it with his legendary alto horn for some time dating back to the 1960ís. Thatís when Maceo and his drummer brother Melvin climbed on board the James Brown funky soul funk train. It wasnít long before James coined the solo summoning signature, ď Maceo, I want you to Blow!Ē. To most musicologists itís the muscially fertile group of men from this period of James Brown's band who are recognized as the early pioneers of the modern funk and hip-hop we still jump to today.
