ABOUT MACEO PARKER

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 like James Brown, George Clinton, and Prince, all the while honing his own signature brand of showmanship. Leading his flawlessly tight band with a cool confidence, Maceo transports audiences to the slickest of eras in performances that are positively timeless.

Maceo will release a new album in Fall 2016 called Roots Revisited – The Bremen Concert, a live recording from the first incarnation of Maceo’s own band in 1990 (which, at the time, included Fred Wesley on trombone, Pee Wee Ellis on tenor saxophone, Larry Goldings on B-3 organ, Rodney Jones on guitar, and Bill Stewart on drums). Maceo’s current band hits the road this season in celebration of repertoire spanning the prolific career of this funk legend.
