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”.

Ho, ho—’oh no!’

first_imgSome aspects of the company holiday party can be anything but festive.“ ‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, the party was roaring, and most folks were soused. Employees danced on the tables with flair, and mistletoe kisses were shared everywhere.”Hopefully this doesn’t describe your credit union’s holiday party, but it aptly portrays some of the corporate revelry that takes place each December. When the “spirit” of the season is the kind that comes from a bottle, the party cleanup crew sometimes includes lawyers.There are many great reasons to end the calendar year with a celebration. An event that has been carefully planned promotes team-building, goodwill, and enthusiasm. Most people love a good party—but some do not.For starters, make it clear the occasion isn’t obligatory. Employees who choose not to attend shouldn’t be made to feel they’ll suffer consequences because of their choice.Because holiday parties often involve references to Christmas, and music and decorations that may express Christian beliefs, you might need to issue a reminder that the dominant religion in our country isn’t the only one. continue reading » 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

MBB : Jardine and Joseph hint at return for senior seasons

first_img Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 21, 2011 at 12:00 pmcenter_img CLEVELAND — After Syracuse’s disappointing early exit from the NCAA Tournament following a 66-62 loss to Marquette, both junior point guard Scoop Jardine and forward Kris Joseph hinted at returns for their respective senior seasons.Joseph popped up as a possible first-round pick during the season. He led the Orange in scoring at 14.3 points per game. But in the locker room after SU’s crushing loss in the third round of the NCAA Tournament, Joseph said he was already looking toward next season.‘Work hard, be a senior leader,’ Joseph said when asked what he needed to do during the offseason moving forward to his final season at Syracuse. ‘Lead these guys, just like Rick (Jackson) did. … I’m looking forward to next year’s season already.’And amid questions concerning his crucial mistakes at the end of Sunday’s contest, Jardine perked up when asked about next season.‘We should be good next year,’ he said.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAssuming they do stick around, Jardine and Joseph will be joined by a loaded supporting cast bolstered by the addition of a heralded freshman class. Sophomore center DaShonte Riley will also return after missing the season and redshirting with an injury similar to a stress fracture in his right foot.At the end of last season, SU lost arguably its three top players in Wes Johnson, Arinze Onuaku and Andy Rautins. This season, the Orange looks to only lose its lone senior in Jackson.Something Jardine also expects to be key is the development of a strong 2010-11 freshman class made up of Dion Waiters, C.J. Fair, Fab Melo and Baye Moussa Keita. After Waiters’ 18-point performance Sunday against Marquette, that’s something his cousin thinks could happen on a regular basis.‘He’s got so many things offensively that you just can’t teach,’ Jardine said. ‘He’s great off the dribble. … He’s going to definitely be great with another year in him to get stronger, to get better and to get mentally better.’Big East left with only two teams in TournamentPerplexed, Buzz Williams searched for a reason why only two of a record 11 Big East teams remain after the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament. To him, every one of those teams was deserving of a Tournament bid.‘We’ve won four of our last five, and on Monday we still won’t be ranked,’ Williams said Sunday after his Marquette team defeated Syracuse. ‘I think that it does speak to the depth of our league.’Further confirming the league’s depth is the fact that the two teams that do remain from the Big East finished ninth (Connecticut) and 10th (Marquette), respectively, in the regular-season standings.But Sunday, when No. 3-seeded Syracuse and No. 2-seeded Notre Dame each fell to lower seeds, much like Pittsburgh and Louisville did in the days previous, questions about the league’s strength were legitimized.Though the league has underachieved in the tournament, six Big East teams finished the regular season ranked inside the Top 25. In the league’s postseason tournament, not even the two top seeds made it to the championship game.‘I mean,’ Williams said, ‘in sticking up for our league, I think that it’s suggestive. If we were the last team in — which I think is hard to argue that we weren’t — for us to be one of the three still remaining, it speaks to the depth of our league and the talent depth of our league.’Even after this weekend’s upsets, some outside the league were still refuting the fact that the Big East was overrated or that it shouldn’t have had 11 teams in the field.To Williams, it doesn’t matter that just two Big East teams remain when evaluating the strength of the league. To him, the only thing that matters is what those 11 teams did during the entire season.‘I think over a period of time is how you can tell how good teams are,’ Williams said. ‘And I think the resume of those 11 institutions speak for themselves over the course of from Christmas to Spring Break.’[email protected]@syr.edulast_img read more
