Maceo Parker did an interview with Tavis Smiley & Dr. Cornel West and talked about James Brown, what James calling him out meant and other stories. He shared stories on finding recording studios for James and how "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag" came to be. Maceo also talks about the first and only time he met Michael Jackson.
