A key figure in the development of funk, Maceo Parker lent his incendiary sax to James Brown's JB's during their late-'60s peak and later joined George Clinton's Parliament-Funkadelic ensemble. Parker is one of the best-known backing musicians in pop history. This is due in no small part to James Brown's exhortations on numerous famous cuts (Brown would often shout "Maceo!" to prompt a horn part). Still, it is Parker's bright, soulful delivery and his expertise at funky punctuation that makes him the final name in R&B brassmanship.
1998's FUNK OVERLOAD gives Parker plenty of room to stretch out. Slick, sophisticated grooves like the opening "Uptown Up" alternate with harder-edged, contemporary jams complete with raps courtesy of Corey Parker. Such old school funk-outs as "Tell Me Something Good," "Youth of the World," and a heart-felt remake of Sly Stone's "Sing A Simple Song" show that Parker hasn't in any way lost touch with his roots. Marked by superior musicianship and irresistibly danceable jams, FUNK OVERLOAD delivers on the promise of its title.
