2020 release. Soul Food - Cooking with Maceo blends raw, old school funk with the flavors of the New Orleans school of music.
Parker worked with Ivan Neville, Nikki Glaspie and Tony Hall, as well as a host of local musicians to record the songs. The funky flavor of the city weaves it's way through the album as the funk father and his band take on iconic songs of the Mississippi masters such as Dr. John's voodoo funk of 'Right Place, Wrong Time', The Meters 'Just Kissed My Baby, ' 'Yes, We Can Can' recorded by Allen Toussaint as well as takes on Aretha Franklin's 'Rock Steady', Prince's 'The Other Side of the Pillow' and Maceo's long-time hero and Ray Charles saxophonist, David "Fathead" Newman's 'Hard Times'. We also get funky workouts from Parkers own back catalogue on 'm a C E O' and 'Cross The Tracks'.
