Bernie Worrell: How many artists can say they were in on the ground floor of a Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame supergroup, all while inventing a completely original and uncanny sound and, in the ensuing years, building a legendary reputation as one of the most versatile hired guns in the music business? True funkateers know the history. From the fat Minimoog bass lines of “Flash Light” and “One Nation Under A Groove” to the percussive piano runs of “Chocolate City” and “Give Up the Funk,” Bernie Worrell is synonymous with the legacy of Parliament-Funkadelic; in fact, he’s one of the originators of the psychedelic funk sound, having written and co-produced the lion’s share of the music going back to Funkadelic’s formative years, with an eclectic ear for everything from Chopin to the Chi-Lites.

June 2011 saw the release of “Bernie Worrell: Standards” — Bernie’s take on jazz standards — precipitating the decision by Worrell and co-producer, Evan Taylor to “take the show on the road“. The Bernie Worrell Orchestra performs with a eight piece band consisting of two guitarists, one drummer, bass, percussion and a three piece horn section that performs songs from this album but also songs from Bernie’s vast repertoire. The enthusiastic response from fellow musicians means you just don’t know who will show up to join the BWO on stage!!!!
