Bernie Worrell / Minnie Riperton

The wonderful genius Bernie Worrell, the Woo himself, left us this weekend. I wrote about his storied career, from taking ParliaFunkadelicMent into the synth-era, to helping Talking Heads find the funk within them, to his fractious period seasioneering for The Pretenders. Farewell, Bernie, and thanks for all that music.

I also wrote a Ten Of The Best for the glorious, much-missed Minnie Riperton, though it could easily have stretched to a Twenty Of The Best, or a Thirty, and so maybe you should just buy Come To My Garden, Perfect Angel and Adventures In Paradise and be done with it?

Thanks for your time, and let’s keep it European.
