R.I.P.: Maurice White

Now Playing, The Eternal Dance (Columbia, 1998). All I need for the stereo. But man, that early-Boston-years show I saw was necessary for my soul.

Earth Wind

You could make a fun case that White was the Apollo to George Clinton’s Dionysus.

Very fine NY Times obit.

One thought on “R.I.P.: Maurice White

  1. Apparently Maurice White once deputised for the absent Elvin Jones with the John Coltrane Quartet at a Chicago jazz club called McKie’s in the early 1960s according to an interview Maurice had with British journalist Richard Williams in 1978. Also admitted that the Egyptology themes were inspired by Sun Ra.
