Yeaaah baby. The mailman delivered that new DVD I’ve been waiting for... “Stranger: Bernie Worrell on Earth.” (In stores now!)
So if you’re a P-Funk fan, you know what time it is. If you’re not into Bernie, maybe you just haven’t heard enough of his keyboardial wizardry.
Let me point you to a FREE MP3.
Bernie Worrell rolls with a barnstorming quartet called Colonel Claypool’s Bucket of Bernie Brains (C2B3 for short) – alongside progressive rockers Les Claypool, Buckethead and Brian “Brain” Mantia.
On the C2B3 website, there’s a free downloadable track from the band’s Sept. 29, 2004, gig in Boston. Happened to be Les Claypool’s birthday, so you’ll hear Bernie jam a little bit of “Happy Birthday to You.”
To get that MP3, follow this link to the band’s homepage, look on the left-hand side, and click where it says “FREE DOWNLOAD: Les’ Birthday Show.”
To hear that track (“Scott Taylor”) streaming on my Vox site, click here. It will give you a sense of Bernie’s wigged-out virtuosity and nutty sense of humor.
