Earlier 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”.

(REUTERS)-Captain Graeme Cremer scored his maiden test century on Monday to help Zimbabwe avoid the follow-on as they scored 373 in reply to Sri Lanka’s 537 in the first Test. Sri Lanka closed the third day five without loss in their second innings, a 169-run overall lead.Cremer’s ton received an ecstatic reception from the small crowd as Zimbabwe showed gutsy determination that had been missing through six successive test defeats going into the two-match series against the in-form but injury-hit Sri Lankans.Zimbabwe’s lower-order rally was inspired by their captain, whose previous high test score was 43 against Bangladesh three years ago.Cremer shared a 132-run partnership for the seventh wicket with wicketkeeper Peter Moor, playing only his second test, and another 92-run stand with Donald Tiripano for the eighth wicket.The 30-year-old Cremer was 102 not out off 207 balls at the end of the innings.Moor fell for 79, fending off a bouncer to hand teenage debutant Lahiru Kumara his first test wicket.Tiripano (46) was trapped lbw by Kusal Mendes, usually a wicketkeeper and bowling only his second over in Test cricket.
