New Listening Room: Funk pioneer Maceo Parker returns
Saxophonist Maceo Parker is a living legend who is one of the most imitated and revered artists of the past half century. His work has changed the world of soul, funk, jazz and hip hop, and each of his releases is something to get excited about.
Well, we're very excited about his newest release, where he taps into the music of James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, and more. The album is called Soul Classic and we think it is an instant classic.
We're pleased to have Soul Classics as our newest Listening Room. Listen to the album below and then check it out for a special price at Amazon.com.
Soul Classics was recorded live at the Leverkusen Festival in November 2011 with the WDR Big Band and special guests Christian McBride and Cora Coleman-Dunham
