RE:  Performance at Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley

COST: $35.00 (Price includes a 5.00 handling fee per person)

 

The Pacific Jazz Institute at Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley presents saxophonist Maceo Parker for four nights.  Band members are Dennis Rollins (trombone), Ron Tooley (trumpet), Will Boulware (keys), Bruno Speight (guitar), Rodney “Skeet” Curtis (bass), Marcus Parker (drums), Corey Parker (vocals) and Martha High (vocals).  Set times Thursday & Sunday at 7:30pm and Friday & Saturday at 7:30pm and 10:00pm.  Doors open at 5:30pm all nights.

 

“Parker talks with his sax, chatters away without a seeming care. It’s a musical antidepressant, an antidote to dark days. ….firmed my belief that the world would be a better place if we all funked together.” – San Diego Reader

 

While James Brown is generally credited with redefining and re-energizing R&B and soul music in the 1960s, turning that revolutionary vision into a reality would not have been possible without the help of his creative collaborator, stage foil and right-hand man, saxophonist Maceo Parker. Like no other sax player before him, Parker stretched the potential of his instrument to unprecedented limits, exhibiting an uncanny ability to alternate the saxophone from a melodic instrument to a percussive one, and then back again, in the span of just a couple of beats, often less.
