Shining star indeed! He anchors the ensemble named for the elements of our worldly existence. A thrilling showman and guru of the groove, Verdine White's artistry draws inspiration from session ace and EWF horn player Louis Satterfield, Sir Paul, and James Jamerson. Verdine is a master of funk, soul, pop, rock, Gospel, rhythm & blues, and disco and permutations thereof. Akin to Elvis, Miles, the Beatles, and Michael Jackson, EWF are among the rare artists who were not only the best of their generation, but also the most commercially successful.
