The Weekend Starts...Now.

Met Pick: Maceo Parker

Sax master brings the funk to Jazz Alley.

By Laura Dannen March 18, 2010

If James Brown was the king of funk, Maceo Parker was a duke. Brown’s saxophonist blows that horn at Jazz Alley all weekend in a soulful tribute to Ray Charles, backed by Dennis Rollins (trombone), Ron Tooley (trumpet), Will Boulware (keys), Bruno Speight (guitar), Rodney “Skeet” Curtis (bass), Jamal Thomas (drums), Corey Parker (vocals) and Neta Hall (vocals). Tickets are $35 for shows Thursday through Sunday (Saturday’s 7:30pm show has sold out). Call 206-441-9729 to buy tickets.
