It's difficult to describe Bernie Worrell's career without reciting a laundry list of musicians with whom he's toured and recorded. My first time seeing him was as a young, hip New Yorker at a Talking Heads concert. My most recent encounter was when he played Vibes with Steve Kimock's band. Bernie has been everywhere in between.
This Friday he'll bring his latest project, the Bernie Worrell Orchestra, to the Brooklyn Bowl for a night of funked-up standards. I caught up with Bernie for some talk about his new project and his illustrious musical past.
