Maceo Parker, a saxophonist, adored for twenty-five years in James Brown’s orchestra, caught up in the P. Funk nebula, from George Clinton’s "Parliament" to Bootsy Collins’s "Rubber Band", has now earned his star status by achieving the marvellous alchemy between the different currents of black American music. In the vanguard of groove, he mixes all the trends of funky jazz going back to the sources of gospel and blues, with only one goal: the overheating of concert halls. A furious invitation to surrender to the madness of incredibly energetic music.
Jazz dictionaries take funk back to the very beginning of the (last) century: a mixture of blues and gospel, the very roots of jazz with this authentic, rustic aspect. Maceo, for his part, doesn’t bother with these convolutions: "When you play music, and the audience really participates, feels like dancing, clapping their hands, then there," he laughs, "that’s what I call funky music." A jazz-funk carried by the lungs of steel of an exceptional artist who returns to play the "horny horns" with his latest album, Life on Planet Groove - Revisited in front of the Juan-les-Pins audience, addicted, since his first concert in the Gould pine forest, to the famous "Maceo Touch".
