"the greatest little funk orchestra on earth"

Recommended Posts

"Everything's coming up Maceo," concluded DownBeat Magazine in a 1991 article, at the at the beginning of Maceo Parker's solo career. At the time Maceo was a remembered by aficionados of funk music as back-seat sideman; appreciated by those in the know, but not well known on the music scene of the time. More than a decade later Maceo Parker is enjoying a blistering solo career. For the past ten years Maceo has been building a new funk empire, fresh and stylistically diverse. He navigates deftly between JB's 1960's soul and George Clinton's 1970's freaky funk while exploring mellower jazz and hip-hop.

Throughout the United States, Europe and Japan he has garnered unusual simultaneous respect as both an unrivaled musical legend and a hip, contemporary artist. Today Maceo headlines over 250 performances a year worldwide to sold-out audiences of college fans and old-school music aficionados alike. Over this time he has collaborated on recordings with such diverse acts as, Ani DiFranco, Prince, De La Soul, Jane's Addiction and Dave Matthews Band.

I recently saw Maceo live in Melbourne Australia. It was an incredible show, they played for 2&1/2hrs and it included a great version of Georgia on my mind as a tribute to Ray Charles. Incredibly funky band...... Incredibly funky man.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
