Maceo PARKER - My First Name Is Maceo 2004 (AVI)

Maceo PARKER - My First Name Is Maceo 2004 (AVI)


In this documentary featuring exclusive interviews and footage, director Markus Gruber presents a thorough look at funk saxophonist Maceo Parker. As part of James Brown's band, the skilled sax player often outshone the frontman, and when Brown became unfortunately incarcerated in the late 1980s, Maceo decided the time was right to form his own group. Featuring legends such as trombonist Fred Wesley and tenor saxophonist Pee Wee Ellis, the group continues to produce the fluid, expressive music for which Maceo has become known. This program features footage from a 1994 tour, and showcases exclusive footage and interviews, including talks with Maceo's brother and other musicians who have known him well.
