Performance – UA Presents: Maceo Parker

Friday, January 10, 2020 - 8:00pm

Kick off the second half of our 25th anniversary season with saxophonist Maceo Parker – the man who embodies the legacy of soul and funk music like no other musician can.

Always at the forefront, Parker has been a common thread in the history of funk helping to pioneer the genre in collaborations with seminal icons like James Brown, George Clinton and Prince, all while honing his own signature brand of showmanship. Leading his flawlessly tight band, which includes many former members of the Ray Charles Orchestra and features the Raelettes, Maceo transports audiences to the slickest of eras with positively timeless performances.

Parker says, "I feel like we can't say the word enough. We all could use a little more love in the world."

This performance is a fitting early celebration of Parker's 77th birthday (on Valentine's Day) and of the longevity and importance of his role in music history.

This event is part of the 2020 Tucson Jazz Festival.
