Maceo Parker was born to parents who themselves were music fanatics. They both loved to sing and used to showcase their talents on a smaller stage by singing church choirs. The duo’s passion for music wasn’t really what got him hooked to music, rather it was one of his uncles that did that. His uncle had an R&B, jazz group by the name of "Blue Notes." Parker used to go and listen to them record and play as a youngster and those sessions began to fascinate him no end.
Slowly, he began to play the saxophone while his two brothers began to learn trombone and drums. Their talents impressed their uncle who then proceeded to call them "the junior Blue Notes." They used to take to the stage and perform at Blue Notes concerts. It wasn’t long before the three Parker brothers began to turn heads as brilliant young performers. Maceo’s brother, Melvin was pretty good at drums which brought him to the notice on a certain "James Brown." Melvin then asked Brown if he had a place for a saxophonist and that is how Maceo Parker was added to the ranks as well.
That was the break Maceo was looking for and he made the most of it. He started off playing baritone saxophone but his switch to tenor is what brought out the best he had to offer. His talents first came to mainstream prominence when he played on "Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag," a Brown track that became a huge hit in the year 1965. Maceo Parker didn’t take long to become an integral part of James Brown’s group. The two of them worked on the likes of "Mother Popcorn," "Cold Sweat" and "I Got You (I Feel Good)" all super hit releases.
Maceo Parker then decided to try his luck as a solo artist and left Brown’s group in the year 1970. He incepted his own group and named it "Maceo & All the King’s Men." He was joined by Melvin as the drummer. The group didn’t waste any time and came out with their first album "Doin’ Their Own Thing" before the year came to a close. They had by then established a strong reputation for being amazing liver performers.
The group foe one reason or another didn’t do too well on the commercial front and in 1973 Parker once again went back to Brown. That stint didn’t last for more than a year and Parker went to collaborate with "George Clinton" on different projects. That association lasted for a decade, after which Parker once again returned to Brown to play for him for the next four years.
He still found the time to play for a few Clinton projects which enhances his profile. By 1988, Parker was asked by "Keith Richards" to work with him on his debut album titled "Talk is Cheap." Parker was still working with Brown and with every year that passed by his popularity soared to new heights. His talents were recognized by one and all and the likes of "Material," "Living Colour" and "Deee-Lite" requested him to perform with them.
Parker once again went solo in 1990 and released "Roots Revisited," "Mo’Roots" and "Life on Planet Grooves" while also touring frequently. His reputation was now at an all time high and Maceo Parker tickets were in demand every time he took to the stage to perform. He has kept recording and releasing epics like "Southern Exposure," "Funk Overload," "Dial: M-A-C-E-O," Made by Maceo," Roots & Grooves" and "Soul Classics" among others to a lot of acclaim.
Maceo Parker has performed in multiple countries around the world. He has won accolades like the Lifetime Achievement Award from "Victoires Du Jazz." Not only that, but he is now also a member of the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame for all that he has achieved over the course of a stellar career.
