Maceo Parker + Karl Denson's Tiny Universe

It would be blasphemous—well, in the First Church of Funk anyway—to dis Maceo Parker; who else could play first fiddle, er, sax in James Brown’s band? At this point, though, his shows are a bit like romantic comedies: seen one, seen ’em all, except for that one where Prince showed up. (Which makes this a good time to mention that Maceo's playing Prince's NYC-area shows in December; consider this a warm-up.) Fellow sax-funkster Karl Denson revs up the throng.
