Playing tracks by
Earth Wind & Fire.
This is my personal tribute to Maurice White, the visionary behind Earth, Wind & Fire and composer of so much of their incredible catalogue of music, who passed away in February 2016. It features one or more of my favourite tracks from every EWF album upto the early eighties and concludes with two of Maurice White's finest mid-tempo, life-affirming songs, which he was a master of crafting and which are a most fitting way to bid farewell to the man himself. The mix is sprinkled with excerpts of Maurice White speaking about music and the band from the EWF documentary, Shining Stars. Here's to the man who, probably more than anyone, believed in the power of music, and had the talent and will to exercise that power such that it enriched so many people's lives.
