Every key on your board had a different personality. It was as if your music was born from the touch of imagery. You had a synesthetic magic to your art and there can never be another like you. Thank you for the funk, thank you for the purple, thank you for the grooves that brought mankind together. Peace be with you and your family, Bernie.

I used to bring Bernie to my school to talk and play with my students. He was so gracious to do it. So many memories from that experience. The best was the band I have with my students asked him to play Pharrell's "Happy". He didn't know the song but jammed anyway. He was amazing. I took a solo and quoted the jazz standard "Work Song". Bernie finished my quote. My best experience playing music in my life. Afterwards, Bernie asked me the name of the quote we both played! He was an encyclopedia of music. A true genius. I will miss you!

My Heart goes out to the Worrell Familia . Any one who knows music is well aware that Mr Worrell was the main source of the beauty of P-Funk and the underlying groove. Blacktronic Science is one of my favorite records any fan should own it . Many Blessings
