Maceo Parker to play Wednesday, January 24 - Saturday, January 27 at Jazz at the Bistro

Funk/jazz saxophonist Maceo Parker is coming to St. Louis to perform Wednesday, January 24 through Saturday, January 27 at Jazz at the Bistro.

Parker (pictured) probably still is best known for his time with "Godfather of Soul" James Brown, but he also has made significant contributions to recordings by George Clinton, Bootsy Collins, Prince, and numerous others.

Since leaving Brown's employ in the late 1980s, he's enjoyed a successful solo career, fronting his own band and occasionally teaming up with fellow former JB sidemen Fred Wesley and/or Alfred "Pee Wee" Ellis.  Parker's most recent recording, Soul Classics was released in 2012.

Tickets for Maceo Parker at Jazz at the Bistro are $40 for the Wednesday and Thursday shows, $45 for Friday and Saturday, and will go on sale at 10:00 a.m. this Friday, November 24 via the Jazz St. Louis box office
