BIG MAC Maceo Parker Headlines Jazz Canarias

World renowned saxophonist Maceo Parker brings the funk to the fore at this year’s Jazz Canarias Festival…

Maceo Parker is widely regarded as the funkiest saxophonist on the planet – and boasts all of the career credentials to collaborate this claim. Having started out with the Godfather of Soul, James Brown, before boarding George Clinton’s P-Funk Mothership – whilst also supporting other big names such as Prince and Bootsy Collins - whilst being sampled by scores of hip hop artists.

He will be appearing in the Plaza El Almacen in the island capital of Arrecife on July 19th at 20.30, alongside Judith Hill, a vocal powerhouse who has backed artists of the stature of Stevie Wonder and the late Michael Jackson.

The event is entirely free of charge and forms part of a much wider program of performances taking place across the archipelago in July – for more information visit the official Jazz Canarias website.
