Walter “Junie” Morrison passed away this week, and to honor his legacy, Solange penned a eulogy commemorating the musician. Morrison was best known for his work with the Ohio Players and Parliament-Funkadelic, and Solange’s own A Seat At The Table was inspired in part by Morrison. Read the introductory paragraph of Solange’s eulogy below and check out the entire piece on Saint Heron.
I remember the first time I heard Junie Morrison‘s “Super Spirit” … Q-Tip played it for me one night in his studio in Jersey. No song had ever made me feel quite like it. It tapped into places and spiritual frequencies that I couldn’t even put into words. I listened to it on loop for an hour, each listen hitting me deeper and deeper.
