A spectacular tribute to a true American music icon, from one of his most adoring – and most celebrated – fans. A young saxophonist from North Carolina once stood outside the Greensboro Coliseum hoping to just catch a glimpse of his idol, Ray Charles. Maceo Parker went on to become one of the most legendary saxophonists in funk, best known for his stellar work with James Brown, Prince and over 25 years of solo work. Maceo has included a Ray Charles cover on every one of his albums, and was thrilled to have the opportunity to go on tour with Charles in the ‘90s. Now, he joins forces with the Ray Charles Orchestra and the Raelettes for a spectacular program honoring his hero.
