"Maceo! Blow your horn!" is how James Brown dynamically signalled his favourite horn player to take another stinging sax solo - and Maceo never once let his boss down. His jabbing playing in the midst of Papa's Got a Brand New Bag and Cold Sweat made him a household name among '60s funk fans; and his playing with Parliament-Funkadelic in the 1970s sealed his position. Now a star in his own right, Maceo's albums showcase his soul-drenched alto sax on a sizzling hybrid of funk, R&B and jazz. His name is synonymous with funky music, his pedigree impeccable; his band, the tightest little funk orchestra on earth.
