If there is anyone who can bridge the generation gap, it is Maceo. He gets Granny, Uncle Leo, and Sister Sue rushing out to the dance floor. Parker earned his stripes playing alto sax with James Brown, George Clinton, and Bootsy Collins. The man has funk in his veins. He's also got jazz chops that are as tasty as a home cooked meal. The Acid Jazz scene is trying to reproduce what Maceo has been doing for decades now.
