Phone: (520) 621-3341
Venue: Centennial Hall
Time: Starting: 08:00 PM
UA Presents showcases saxophonist Maceo Parker: the man who embodies the legacy of soul and funk music like no other musician can. Always at the forefront, Maceo has been a common thread in the history of funk helping to pioneer the genre in collaborations with seminal icons like James Brown, George Clinton and Prince, all while honing his own signature brand of showmanship. Leading his flawlessly tight band which includes many former members of the Ray Charles Orchestra and features the Raelettes, Maceo transports audiences to the slickest of eras with positively timeless performances, at Centennial Hall on the University of Arizona campus. This performance is part of the Tucson Jazz Festival.
