 Newsletter-ThisWeek
To begin with, let's just say this: Maceo Parker's career represents the full spectrum of the history of funk music, and he is a musician, and a person that others should admire, imitate, and look up to.
Unlike Brown, Parker treated his fellow musicians as equals and was thus able to attract the top funk talent to not only join him, but to stay on.
Often, in places where the audience is younger, or in places where funk is just a sample, I imagine that Cory Parker's rapping is an extremely important part of the show, allowing the band to connect with a younger audience (in much the same way George Clinton's rapping sections sprinkle throughout P-Funk shows).
