Description

“Funk is life,” said Maceo Parker in an interview published in the magazine Enlace Funk. And he has good reasons for saying it, because, for this singer and blower born in North Carolina 68 years ago, life has been a thrilling succession of syncopated rhythms ever since he made friends with James Brown in 1964 and, a year later, took part in the recording of the piece “Papa’s Got A Brand New Bag”, considered the first big hit of the funk era. With the patriarch of syncopated music, Parker contributed his art to numbers like “I Got You (I Feel Good)”, “Cold Sweet” or “Funky Drummer”. In the ‘70s and ‘80s he teamed up with trombonist Fred Wesley and sax player Pee Wee Ellis and worked for funk guru George Clinton and his group Parliament. In the ‘90s he recorded albums as well-known as Mo’Roots (Verve) and Funk Overload (WAR). He has worked with stars like Prince or the Red Hot Chili Peppers. He is, in fact, a star of Afro-American music; a historic figure who will make the Palau de la Música throb to the most rhythmic opening the Mas i Mas Festival could possibly have.
