I had the distinct pleasure of seeing musical prodigy Bernie Morrell and his Orchestra perform last night at Gemstones Lounge in Lowell, Massachusetts.
Toted as the “Jimi Hendrix of Keyboards,” Bernie orbited his moog last night with the precision of a proud pioneer.
His electic career has become synonymous with acts such as Parliament Funkadelic, Talking Heads, Aerosmith and The Rolling Stones.
Check out the trailer for the Bernie Worrell Documentary: Stranger: Bernie Worrell On Earth. It’s available in full on netflix.

“Funk upon a time, in the days of Funkapuss, the concept of specially designed afronauts capable of funkatizing the galaxies was first laid on man child”
Now, who’s your favorite funk-a-teer?
