Rolling Stone
To prepare for his Hendrix concert and album, Evans (who never met Hendrix face to face) immersed himself in Hendrix albums. Including 12 bootleg albums somebody lent me – Hendrix in Europe, in Berkeley and so on. It really adds up to an impressive catalog. […]

xhua @ RateYourMusic
The free roll of the classic tunes of Jimi is amazing from the 4~5 horns, 3 electrical guitars, several synthesiers, 2 basses, 2 percussions. Jazz music? Rock’n’Roll, Avant Garde Jazz, Jazz Fusion? Whatever! Play this music loud!!! It’s a sound banquet, a music party! […]

allmusic
