Funk Lite

NightTrane

This Funk album is very tight and professional but it lacks any sweat or heavy grooves. And the rapping is lame. Overall I don't feel this album.

They Say All Music Guide

Having steered the mothership and worked as a triggerman for the Godfather of Soul, storied sax man Maceo Parker now brings his own tight rhythm and soul sound to vinyl (er, plastic) in undeniable proof that he’s still “got it.” Combining his smoking horn with the backing of fellow legends such as trombonist Fred Wesley and new bloods such as son Corey (whose intermittent raps colorfully enhance the album’s youthful vibrance), Maceo works through the familiar funk and soul lines of his Parliament and JB days and adds new twists to such classics as Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On” and “Inner City Blues,” Stevie Wonder’s “Tell Me Something Good,” and Sly Stone’s “Sing a Simple Song,” while offering a number of his own well-orchestrated and well-seasoned compositions. “Youth of the World” features Maceo on a lead vocal reminiscent of Kool Moe Dee or Kurtis Blow, while “Do You Love Me” rises like Tower of Power before the sultry Chicago lines of closer “Going in Circles.” Though Maceo’s original lyrical attempts may be a bit immature, his years of experience and hard work shine through with every brassy attack and smooth soul note. – Matthew Robinson
