Entertainment Weekly - 4/5/91
"...a soul-jazz album that allows Parker to stretch out melodically."
Down Beat
4 Stars - Very Good
Stereo Review (3/91) - Performance "Finger-snappin' good" / Recording "Excellent" - "...retains all the nasty ingredients that make us snap our fingers and twist our bodies, but it dishes up the funk with a generous sprinkling of individual jazz expression."

Altoist Maceo Parker has spent most of his career in R&B funk bands, most notably those led by James Brown, George Clinton, and Bootsy Collins. This CD gave him a chance to stretch out as a leader, and his soulful horn immediately brings to mind Hank Crawford and (to a lesser extent) Lou Donaldson. With a strong backup group that includes Pee Wee Ellis on tenor, trombonist Fred Wesley, and Don Pullen on organ, Parker enthusiastically plays over infectious grooves with just one funky departure ("In Time"). Roots Revisited is a throwback to the 1960s soul-jazz style and Maceo Parker gives one the impression that, if called upon, he could hold his own on a bebop date. ~ Scott Yanow
