“Maceo, blow your horn!” This message alone will suffice to get every auditorium filled to bursting, but for those who don't know: sax player Maceo Parker was James Brown's regular sideman (These days, it’s Prince who regularly calls him to the stage that way). Since the 1990s he has been a solo artist star, made eleven albums and has blown the roof off at the original North Sea Jazz Festival in The Netherlands many times. 2012 Saw the release of a new Parker album, entitled Soul Classics. On his own albums he immerses his sax in soul, funk and R&B. In doing so he not only likes to take things from the past, but also to add new songs to an old tradition. Parker always lets others share in the party on stage.
