Gritty , Joyful, and hard hitting all the  while, is the SAXY Maceo Parker. “pass the peas”, “we’re gonna have a funky good time”,” it takes two” . just a few classics out of the fast paced  hit- filled  Maceo Parker show last night under the stars at  Brooklyn Bridge park! While he’s not backing up Prince , Maceo’s  titey tite tite  band including  Rodney “skeet” Curtis on bass ( P-funk and many others) , on guitar-the steady Bruno Speight , on drums ( somebody let me know his name but he plays with Janelle Monae! ) , on keys ( let me know if you know) , has been traveling the world and giving up the funk. When he was James brown’s horn arranger and MD he learned a mountain of skills that have kept  him killin it to this day  as well as developing his own sound of playing a horn like a drum. I was first introduced to Maceo via Bootsy Collins and  he and Fred Wesely were all over the first deee-lite album and even on stage . That’s him wearing the blue Mugler suit in the “groove is in the heart”  video.  DJ Spinna warmed up the all- ages crowd with his rare golden 45’s . a perfect spring evening. Maceo will  be back  in NYC May 18th at S.O.B.s - lady kier

I suggest you get his new album :
