Maceo Parker – Minnpost Pick

Artscape by Pamela Espeland

Calling his music “2 percent jazz, 98 percent funky stuff,” the irrepressible saxophonist played with James Brown in the 1960s, George Clinton and P-Funk in the 1970s, Ray Charles and Prince in the 1990s. Plus he leads his own band. On Sunday, they played the Hollywood Bowl at the Playboy Jazz Festival, and now, with equal heat and funkiness, they’ll play the slightly smaller Dakota. 7 and 9 p.m. FMI and tickets ($25-50). P.S. Want to know more about funk? Check out “How James Brown Invented Funk,” featuring Nahre Sol and L.A. Buckner, part of TPT’s Sound Field series.
