Pee Wee, Fred & Maceo
Funk will reign supreme when trombonist Fred Wesley and alto saxophonist Maceo Parker, the core of James Brown's brawny JB Horns, reunite for the first time in more than a decade to celebrate the 70th birthday of their frequent collaborator, tenor titan Pee Wee Ellis. Another dream team backs the jazz/funk vets: Larry Goldings on the keys, Christian McBride on the bass, Bill Stewart on the drums, and Rodney Jones on the guitar. You could do a lot worse.
