PART 2 - Various artists tributes
<>HENDRIX UNCOVERED - New Music Inspired By Jimi Hendrix by the Marzena Music Ensemble<>
<>This collection of tributes from musicians around the world was put together by the Portland-based composer and impresario Bob Priest. It's a haunting journey into contempory and ambiant expression with hardly a direct musical reference to Jim's work apart from the odd quote or sample. The various musicians use acoustic guitar, sax, trombone, double bass, cello, oriental instruments and percussion, often combining there work with tape manipulations and "cosmic background radiation"!
The contributors: Cappone d'Angelo, Stuart Dempster, Claudio Ambrosini, Douglas Hensley, Wrick Wolff, Henry Gwiazda, Claire Sykes, Randy Raine-Reusch, Michael Longton, Lafayette String Quartet, James Harley, Patrick Markland, Anton Hatwich, Stu Dempster, Joanna Hood, and Bop Priest himself.

This massive 4 CD set was made "by hard core fans - for hard core fans". It's an unofficial project and not available on the market but it will soon be available for free download. The whole thing is the brainchild of Hendrix archivist and musician Kurt Max. On the forum electricskychurch.org (of which he is one the administrators), he invited musicians from around the world to participate and has also gathered together other related material from his archives.
So, a look down the track listing shows that among the relatively unknown participants, there are also interpretations of Hendrix songs by Mick Jagger, Frank Zappa, Johnny Winter, Spirit and Graham Bonnet. Also in there are Noel Redding, Billy Cox and Jimi's half brother Leon, who sings and plays guitar on one of his own compositions while Kurt plays all the backing ! Kurt also gives us some of his own Hendrix covers and among all the other fan material there are a couple from Rudy Kronfuss (his own tribute CDs are detailed on the first Tributes page here) and even my friend Régis (alias Ayler) of the super Forum Jimi Hendrix (http://hendrix.aceboard.fr).
What's great about this collection is the rich variety of styles and the choice of songs rarely covered, such as "Pali Gap", "Astro Man", "Hey Baby", "Villanova Junction", etc. Some interpretations are very faithfull, others explore new directions. The whole thing is of course crammed full of rich guitar solos which is what the people want, right ?
If that's not all, on Disc 4, Kurt has included a cluster of rarities from Jimi Hendrix in person ! They are tracks that turned up briefly on a Russian site some years ago, before disappearing altogether. That "Hear My Freedom" sounds like it is from the Lee Michaels jam (as heard on the bootleg "Ball & Chain"). "Inst. 4564" is strange, I think I remember this winding figure from Univibes "Calling Long Distance" but here the sound is very clean and there are string and tympani overdubs (presumably from the Alan Douglas era). The incomplete"Tax Free" could be from Winterland 68 (to be confirmed). Finally "Track 01" I know as "Jazz Jimi Jazz" from the Purple Haze Records release "Axis Outtakes" but here the sound is very clear.
Nice one Kurt.
Some other recordings by the various Hendrix tribute bands perhaps exist also. If you know of any please let me mail me.
