Jazz saxophonist Maceo Parker’s contribution to Funk, Jazz and Soul music is legendary, best known for his work with James Brown in the 60’s, as well as Parliament-Funkadelic in the 70’s. He makes a welcome appearance, at the EFG Jazz Festival.
For the last two decades Maceo Parker has been enjoying a blistering solo career, building a new Funk Empire; one that is both fresh and stylistically diverse. He navigates deftly between James Brown’s 1960’s soul and George Clinton’s 1970’s freaky funk while exploring mellower Jazz and the grooves of Hip-Hop.
A performance not to be missed;
