The album 'Roots Revisted' topped the Billboard Jazz Charts in 1990 and the Rolling Stone magazine named him 'Best Jazz Artist Of The Year'. In the years to come, Maceo Parkers success would steadily grow.

Besides the work in the studio, the live album 'Life On Planet Groove' released in 1992 and the concert film and album 'Maceo' released in 1994 on Minor Music are testament to the energetic and charismatic live performance of Maceo Parker, combining James Brown's artistic control over the band and George Clinton's unique way to woo the audience in a unique style. George Clinton produced a third Horny Horns album with Fred Wesley and Maceo in 1993. During the first half of the nineties Maceo Parker also appears on albums by Pop-Funk band Deee Lite, Black-Rock heroes Living Colour, old friend Bernie Worrell, original Hip Hop band De La Soul, Bill Laswell's Material and rising saxophone star Candy Dulfer, among others. Joined by his son Corey Parker on rap vocals Maceo released the album 'Funkoverload' in 1998 being the first of a string of albums blending dirty Funk, smooth Jazz and catchy Pop tunes in his own Funky style. Having extensively toured with Fred Wesley and Alfred 'Pee Wee' Ellis, Maceo parted ways with his old friends by the beginning of the new millenium.
