Talking Heads' Burning Down The House performed LIVE on Sunday


Talking Heads' Burning Down The House performed LIVE on 4/1/12
at Fairfield Theatre Company-Bernie Worrell Orchestra

An amazing and rare performance last night in Fairfield. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame keyboard legend Bernie Worrell and his Orchestra play the Talking Heads' epic BURNING DOWN THE HOUSE along with Chris Frantz on drums, bassist Tina Weymouth, with percussionist extraordinaire Steve Scales, at the Fairfield Theatre Company in Fairfield, CT on April 1st, 2012. Listen to an interview with Bernie on the radio show Chris Frantz the Talking Head from 3/30/12 HERE: http://archives.wpkn.org/bookmarks/listen/33831 After departing Parliament Funkadelic, Worrell resurfaced with the revamped Talking Heads lineup for several albums, including The Name of This Band Is Talking Heads, Speaking In Tongues and Jonathan Demme's dazzling concert film, Stop Making Sense. Worrell's ominous colorings were central to the recasting of group leader David Byrne's musical ideas through African rhythms. Bernie Worrell is a wizard of the keys, a scientist of the synthesizer, a mad hatter of funk. Like a true legend, the funk runs through his veins just as hard, thick and fast as through the veins of George Clinton or James Brown. http://youtu.be/M-MC489VDD8
