VIDEO: Bernie Worrell Orchestra 5/12/14 Louisville, Kentucky @ Zanzabar

Bernie Worrell - Zanzabar

Bernie Worrell brought his Orchestra through Kentucky recently and basically burned the house down. He added several songs to his normal setlist, including opening the set with Talking Heads‘ Burning Down The House and encoring with a jammed out impromptu version of Bob Marley‘s Stir It Up, before closing with The Beatles‘ Come Together. He was also joined by P-Funk Allstars alumni Rico Lewis on second drum kit for most of the evening. You could tell that Bernie was particularly inspired this night, which isn’t necessarily always the case.

The real highlight, though, is video 3 of 5 below, where Bernie started teasing That’s All by Genesis. But he didn’t stop with a tease, and the whole band joined him for a 10 minute jam. Check it out at the 7 minute mark, Bernie gets possessed! (Apologies that part 3 is lower quality, shot with my iPhone because it was faster to get going than the full video camera rig which was turned off and had the lens cap on. Little did I know that the tease would turn into a full on jam.)

I’m not very familiar with Ledesi, mainly went to see Robert Glasper Experiment. She started out with a Beyonce-like bang with background dancers and all. Not what I expected but definitely entertaining. I can only imagine the record label pressures for her to cash in on this style of music. Throughout the course of the set I quickly realized that she has an amazing voice with amazing control, but she is also very humerous, a great performer, and full of old school soul.

Song 4 is missing because my batteries died, a shame since it was an old school soul number, probably from one of her older albums. I also stopped recording in the middle of Pieces of Me to conserve batteries, since I suspected Glasper would be coming out later and I didn’t want to miss that (his Rhodes was set up on stage and left empty during all of Ledesi‘s set). Glasper did come out for 15 minutes near the end, performing their collab, Gonna Be Alright (which is actually a rework of Glasper‘s composition FTB). Glasper stayed for the next song and an outro jam with the band.
