Jazz, Funk, R&B/Soul
"It’s All About Love" Starring Maceo Parker, With the Maceo Parker Big Band
Legendary saxophonist Maceo Parker embodies the legacy of soul and funk music like no other musician today. Always at the forefront, Parker 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. All the while, he has a signature brand of showmanship with a cool confidence embodied in his distinctive sound. In this special program, the saxophonist and his flawlessly tight big band, which includes former members of the Ray Charles Orchestra and features the Raelettes, bring together a joyful experience of all things love. “I feel like we can’t say the word enough,” Parker says. “We all could use a little more love in the world.” Anchored in music from his 2018 album, It’s All About Love will include hits from Crosby, Stills & Nash, Stevie Wonder, and the Isley Brothers; signature songs of Ray Charles; and Parker classics such as “Pass the Peas.” Parker will sing and play his way through an evening that transports audiences to the most soulful of eras in a performance that is positively timeless.
