Maceo Parker

Sax funk legend Maceo Parker first gained notoriety when he was part of James Brown's band and landed a solo on "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag." This led to solo's on other classics such as "Cold Sweat" and "Sex Machine." Maceo later left James Brown along with bassist Bootsy Collins and trombonist Fred Wesley to join George Clinton and Parliament where they took funk to a whole other level. In 2004 Maceo was part of Prince's Musicology tour where he received great critical acclaim. Maceo still continues to tour the world with his own band.

I love Maceo! Nice selections. I've had "Funky Music Machine" in my collection for years now. I don't have "Soundtrack". I'll be on the "look out" for it!
