Standards is the ninth solo album by former Parliament-Funkadelic keyboardist Bernie Worrell. The album was released in 2011 by Scufflin' Records.[1] This is a cover album, meaning none of these songs are originals written by Bernie, although he puts his signature funky twist on them, using a moog synthesizer on many of the songs. All of the songs are jazz standards.
