Jimi Hendrix on the A-Trane!

No not back from the dead but just noticing that this week is the 40th anniversary of the death ofJimi Hendrix (I remember it well, I was bummed out for a long time) and on the radio show this week, I thought I would do bit of a tribute to Jimi and his jazz descendants - meaning people who have covered his music or maybe explicitly influenced by him or whatever - it's a
pretty loose definition in my mind and a good excuse to construct a fun show.

I have a few things in mind:

Lots of the Gil Evans stuff, the RCA studio, Gramavision/Sweet Basil and lots of other live sessions;

Robert Dick's excellent tribute recording;

Paul Plimley/Lisle Ellis do a great Third Stone from the Sun;

The Tiptons getting All Manic;

World Sax Quartet getting Experienced;

several Voodoo Chile covers including Stevie Ray Vaughan;

and of course some Jimi etc....

Also noticed that Chris Gestrin et al are doing a Larry Young Tribute at the Cellar this weekend and of course, Larry Young played with Hendrix (and was indebted to Coltrane)!

-- Any other suggestions? Favorites?

Here's a link to get your mind focused:

Now all I need to do is find a Hendrix-inspired version of Take the A Train and I'll be all set ...

P.S. I saw this show in Toronto May 1969, he got busted at the airport but they still let him do the show:

Hendrix

The vocalist Cynthia Jones has a good version of "Up From The Skies" on her album "Cynthia Jones & The West Coast Nightlights" on Sweet Flame Records.

Thanks for the recommendation, I'm not familiar with Cynthia Jones (I'll see if I can check out that track) but I've run into some other unusual suggestions including the fact that the late Kenny Rankin did a cover of Up From the Skies on his Inside recording re-issued last year. I don't think there's even any possibility of including all the stuff I have in hand let alone all the great suggestions I've received so I may have to do a followup show with even more!

As I mentioned Larry Young will also be a sub-feature on the show - I've dug up some of the un-edited recordings that appeared on Nine to the Universe which feature a jam between Jimi and Larry Young while he was working on John McLaughlin's Devotion recording. Lots of fun! ... N
