Maceo Parker

May 4, 2019 @ 8:00 pm

Since his earliest days, he has gravitated to the more rhythmic and soulful end of the spectrum, following figures like Louis Jordan,Ray Charles and James Brown – all of whom were innovators, each pushingtheir respective sound and style to the point of becoming something entirely new. It was Parker’s recurring stints in Brown’s band, in fact,that not only produced some of the most enduring entries in the vast canonof American soul music, but also sowed the seeds of the funk revolutionof the 1970s. In hindsight, Maceo Parker has been as innovative as the people whom he cites as his own influences.
