Today, let’s celebrate the birthday of one of the all-time great sidemen in rock and soul history, saxophonist Maceo Parker. When he joined James Brown’s band in 1964, he was basically a throw-in – James really wanted Maceo’s brother, Melvin, who played drums. Maceo turned out to be quite the bonus, playing on countless great sides with the Hardest Working Man in Show Business. Having been around for the invention of funk, it makes sense that George Clinton would want Maceo to play with Parliament-Funkadelic. And during the ‘70s, Maceo began recording his own records as well. He’s recorded 11 albums on his own and recorded with everyone from De La Soul to Prince. He’s one of the greats.
