We remember the great music of Maurice White, legendary founder, singer, multi-instrumentalist, writer and producer of Earth Wind & Fire in our huge playlist.
Maurice ‘Reese’ White, who passed away yesterday aged 74 after a long period with Parkinson’s, was a true giant of music. White shaped the creation, phenomenal musical output and popular live artistry of Earth, Wind & Fire, and worked with a stunning array of musicians from R&B and jazz to pop. In our playlist, we take a journey through many of the great songs he created.
