Writing Music: Maceo Parker

Los Angeles, CA

Two of my favorite people from college -- Dutch and Singer -- frequently blasted this particular album at all hours. I have fond memories of lazy Atlanta fternoons coming back from class and hearing the opening track from Life on Planet Groove echoing and reverberating throughout the house.

Maceo Parker, most known for being a horn player in James Brown's band, gives a narration at the onset: "Happy music is when you hear it and you start moving and shaking something... automatically. And you smile a lot too!"
