Maceo Parker: It's All About Love

North America

Legendary saxophonist Maceo Parker embodies the legacy of soul and funk music like no other musician today. Always at the forefront, Maceo has been a common thread in the history of funk ‘” pioneering the sound of the genre in collaborations alongside seminal icons such as James Brown, George Clinton, and Prince and all the while honing his own signature brand of showmanship with a cool confidence embodied in his distinctive sound.

In this special program Maceo, along with his flawlessly tight Big Band – which includes many former members of the Ray Charles Orchestra and features the Raelettes – brings together a joyful experience of all things LOVE. ‘I feel like we can’t say the word enough,’ Maceo says speaking of the project, ‘we all could use a little more love in the world.’

Anchored in music from his new album It’s All About Love (including hits from Crosby, Stills & Nash, Stevie Wonder and the Isley Brothers: Love The One You’re With, Love Won’t Let Me Wait, Isn’t She Lovely), some of the signature songs of Ray Charles as well as Maceo classics such as “Pass the Peas,” Maceo will be both singing and playing his way throughout an evening that transports audiences to the most soulful of eras in a performance which is positively timeless.
