[JAZZ-NOT-JAZZ]: Founding member of the original funk band Parliament-Funkadelic, pianist Bernie Worrell plays Standards

JAZZNOTJAZZ in theory is an innovative approach by visionary artists whose passion for aesthetics, listening, and the concept of playing and composing by non-jazz musicians who deeply love and respect this music.

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and founding member of the original Parliament-Funkadelic, Bernie Worrell returns with this slab of funk-drenched jazz standards. This traditional compilation effectively positions the Great American Songbook as the control in that grand democratic social experiment known as jazz.

Featuring a variety of definitive songs like “Take the ‘A’ Train,” “Take Five,” and “Moon River,” Standards truthfully tells the story of the song with the ultimate mixture of sonic flavor. ~Editorial Review | Amazon

Original Release Date: May 27, 2011
