Maceo Parker Soul Food: Cooking With Maceo Colored Vinyl LP
Maceo Parker's Soul Food - Cooking with Maceo is the first release on Mascot Label Group's new imprint The Funk Garage and finds the music legend blending raw, old school funk with the flavors of the New Orleans school of music. Parker worked with Ivan Neville, Nikki Glaspie and Tony Hall, as well as a host of local musicians to record the groovy 9-track collection.
The funky flavor of the city weaves its way throughout the album as the Funk Father and Co. take on such iconic songs as Dr. John's "Right Place, Wrong Time," The Meters' "Just Kissed My Baby," "Yes, We Can Can" recorded by Allen Toussaint as well as Aretha Franklin's "Rock Steady," Prince's "The Other Side of the Pillow" and Maceo's long-time hero and Ray Charles saxophonist, David "Fathead" Newman's "Hard Times." We also get funky workouts from Parker's own back catalogue in "M A C E O" and "Cross The Tracks," the latter adopted by Gilles Peterson as the staple song of his iconic WAG Club in Soho, London in the 1980s.
