Jazz Roots: Super Sax

| November 16, 2012 | Calendar

Headlining the concert is legendary saxophone master and consummate showman Maceo Parker. Since he climbed on board the James Brown funky soul train, Maceo Parker has become recognized as one of the early pioneers of the modern funk and hip-hop we know today. More recently, he has been enjoying a phenomenal solo career and building a new funk empire that is fresh and stylistically diverse as he navigates deftly between James Brown's 1960s soul and George Clinton's 1970s funk while exploring jazz and hip-hop.

Defining her own brand of jazz is the Grammy nominated genre-crossing saxophonist Candy Dulfer, whose solo debut album Saxuality sold more than a million copies worldwide. The globe-trotting Dulfer has performed with such notable artists as Aretha Franklin, Marcus Miller, and Chaka Khan, as well as her own band, Funky Stuff. Dulfer was brought into the limelight by Prince, who introduced her to the world at the age of 19 via his video for "Partyman." In 2004, she joined Prince for the massive Musicology Tour, playing over 90 shows in sell-out arenas across the USA. Her most recent recording, Crazy, was released in 2011.
