Editorial Reviews

2012 live album from the renowned saxophonist. Soul Classics is a collection of nine songs recorded live at the Leverkusener Jazz Festival in Leverkusener, Germany, in November 2011. The recording captures Parker and his own small combo - bassist Christian McBride and drummer Cora Coleman-Dunham - in collaboration with the Cologne-based 15-piece orchestra led by conductor/arranger Michael Abene that has previously backed such prominent artists as Ray Charles, Joe Zawinul, Michael and Randy Brecker, and many others.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love me some Maceo January 30, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
It's maceo. if you're thinking about buying it you probably already know how awesome he it. Not on the same level as Life on Planet Groove, but better than his two previous albums in my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tightest Big Band You'll Ever Hear January 25, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The WDR Big Band backing MP is tight and punches out jazzy yet funky arrangements. The recording quality is stellar. Maceo Parkers solos, especially on the second cut Higher Ground, are as good as it gets...if you like big band and some interesting interpretations of American Soul music (get the title?) then this is for you. Mr. One Star obviously doesn't dig this kind of music, far from crap, this is great music making.
