Maceo Parker (født 14. februar 1943) er en amerikansk jazz-, funk- og soul-saksofonist mest kjent for sitt arbeid med James Brown60-tallet og som medlem av Parliament-Funkadelic70-tallet. Parker var solist på mange av Browns suksessalbum, og var en av nøkkelpersonene i bandet.

Biografi[rediger | rediger kilde]

Parker ble født i Kinston, North Carolina. Hans far spilte piano og trommer (begge foreldrene sang og spilte i kirken). Hans bror, Melvin, spilte trommer mens en annen bror, Kellis spilte trombone.[1]

Maceo og Melvin sluttet seg til James Brown i 1964. I sin bok forteller Brown at han først kun ville ha Melvin som trommeslager, men gikk med på å ta med Maceo som en del av avtalen.[2] Maceo, broren og noen få andre i bandet sluttet etter en tid for å opprette bandet Maceo & All the King's Men.

I 1974 returnerte Parker til James Brown. I 1975 forlot han og Fred Wesley igjen Brown for å være med i George Clintons band Parliament-Funkadelic. Men i årene 1984-1988 var igjen Parker med James Brown.

90-tallet startet Parker sin solokariere som han fremdeles holder på med. Han har gitt ut 10 soloalbum og spiller rundt 100-150 turnekonserter hvert år.

Norgesbesøk[rediger | rediger kilde]

Parker besøkte Norge og Kongsberg da han holdt konsert på Kongsberg Jazzfestival i 1993.
