     Maceo Parker
 
 

Born: Feb 14, 1943 in Kinston, NC
Genres: Jazz
Styles: Soul, Funk, Soul-Jazz
Instruments: Sax (Alto), Leader

"Maceo! Blow your horn!" That's how James Brown would dynamically signal his favorite horn player to take another stinging sax solo - and Maceo Parker never once let his boss down. Parker's jabbing workouts in the midst of "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag" and "Cold Sweat" made him a household name among '60s funk fans - not bad for a kid fresh out of college who got the gig primarily because Brown coveted his brother Melvin's drumming chops.

Now Parker is a star in his own right. His Verve albums Roots Revisited and Mo' Roots impeccably spotlight his soul-drenched alto sax on a sizzling hybrid of funk, R&B, and jazz. And he's brought along his ex-section mates from Brown's band - trombonist Fred Wesley and saxist Pee Wee Ellis - to stoke the almighty groove. The North Carolina product quit Brown several times. Along with his bandmates, Parker mutinied in 1970 to form Maceo & All the King's Men, only to return to the fold three years later; later in the decade, he worked with Parliament/Funkadelic and Bootsy's Rubber Band. But when Brown was incarcerated, Parker was there for him, releasing a rap song that urged the Godfather of Soul's immediate freedom. With his newfound solo fame, however, it's doubtful that you'll see Parker back in Brown's horn section anytime soon.
