Listen To Bernie Worrell’s Final Recording, With The Joe Marcinek Band [Premiere]

first_imgEarlier this year, funk fans everywhere mourned the loss of Bernie Worrell. The elite keyboard player cut his jib with Parliament Funkadelic, and later found success with the Talking Heads and many more exciting projects. Though he suffered from cancer in his final days, Worrell maintained a positive spirit, working with musicians whenever he had the strength.One of Bernie Worrell’s final projects was with the Joe Marcinek Band, working on their upcoming album Slink. Due out on December 9th via Hitman Records, the album sees Marcinek collaborate with greats like Joey Porter (The Motet), Garrett Sayers (The Motet), Pete Koopmans (Family Groove Company), Nicholas Gerlach (Turbo Suit) and Gabriel Mervine (The Motet).Worrell had previously toured with Joe Marcinek, and the two had discussed recording together, but unfortunately Worrell’s condition left him unable to physically attend the sessions in Colorado. However, one track was in need of a keyboard melody part. Marcinek sent over the tape to Worrell, who recorded a lead melody at his home studio back in March. After Worrell’s death just a few months later, the track become a living tribute and earned the title, “Bernie”.“It was such an honor to know and work with Bernie and I am forever grateful for the time spent together,” said Marcinek. “Not only a remarkable musician and a genius innovator of the keyboards. He was a loving giving human being who left everyone he met a better person.” In honor of Worrell, we’re beyond honored to exclusively share the Joe Marcinek’s newest song, “Bernie”.

The blessing of impending doom…

first_imgAll companies do well.  Until they don’t. Most companies form around an idea.  That idea solves a problem. And people will pay for that idea.But time marches on, and problems morph.  That original idea slowly becomes less valuable.  And so does the company.But this rarely happens overnight.  It is a slow, gradual deterioration.Usually, companies respond to sagging sales by tightening their belt.  The work harder.  Faster.  All the while, the ground under their very feet is growing less stable.  Their idea is fading.I’ve seen it over and over.  Companies refuse to change, until they see the hangman’s noose.Once the noose is in sight, change agents spring to life.  Pending doom makes strategic decisions simple.  Change, or go away.  Issues that once paralyzed an organization are swept away in a desire to stay in business.If you want to see this idea in cinematic form, watch this YouTube clip.   Danny DeVito plays a character who wants to liquidate a company.  He stands before a hostile shareholder’s meeting, and tells them the cold, hard truth.We’re dead. We’re just not broke.And you know the surest way to go broke?  Keep getting an increasing share of a shrinking market. Down the tubes.  Slow but sure.You know, at one time there must have been dozens of companies making buggy whips. And I bet the last company around was the one that made the best (expletive) buggy whip you ever saw.  Now how would you have like to have been a stockholder in that company?Too many companies wait until pending doom to make big changes. Not all, but far too many.  They drag their feet on big strategic problems until it might be too late.What a waste.Now, do me a favor.  Take out two pieces of paper.On one, sketch how your credit union would be designed if you were starting it from scratch.On the other, write down a list of things that you’d start doing/stop doing, if pending doom were staring you in the eyes.Now, look at the things on those sheets of paper.What in the world are you waiting for? 7SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Anthony Demangone Anthony Demangone is executive vice president and chief operating officer at the National Association of Federal Credit Unions (NAFCU).
