  • Funk-saxophone-blowing Maceo Parker, best known for working with James Brown and other legendary acts like Prince, playing at Infinity Music Hall October 16.

October 16. "Maceo! Blow your horn!" So went the famous command of his one-time boss, the immortal James Brown, when it was time for the Godfather of Soul's number one saxophonist to take a solo. And, indeed, Maceo Parker's solos are hallmarks of some of Brown's greatest recordings—"Papa's Got a Brand New Bag," "I Got You (I Feel Good)," "Cold Sweat," "Sex Machine," and "Mother Popcorn," to name a few. Besides working with Brown and leading his own bands on and off, Parker, who blows into Infinity Music Hall this month, was also a crucial member of Brown's leading funk disciples, Parliament and Funkadelic, and later worked with Prince and recorded with Keith Richards, De La Soul, Living Colour, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bryan Ferry, Deee-Lite, Ani DiFranco, and many others. Can you say "legend"? (Delbert McClinton delivers October 24; Eric Johnson jams October 27.) 7:30pm. $39, $59. Norfolk, Connecticut. (866) 666-6306; Infinityhall.com.
