Maceo Parker

If you’ve ever listened to a James Brown record, you’ve heard Maceo Parker’s name before. When the Godfather of Soul yelled “Maceo!” it was the call for his favorite player to produce from his saxophone a sound that defines funk. It’s been a long time since the days when Parker played on tracks such as “Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag.” Meanwhile, he has become a star in his own right, releasing albums on which his iconic alto sax sits front and center.
