When you think of Jimi Hendrix, you may think about his primary field of rock, but he touched a plethorea of musical genres.  Our focus on this show will be jazz rock/ fusion.  Many rightly consider Miles Davis as the Father of Fusion.  He should be considered as such, because he took the first leap and showed everyone that fusion is a not only popular with fans, but can also make lots of money.  

People credit Miles' young wife Betty as hipping him to people like Sly Stone and Jimi Hendrix, but Jimi and Miles hit it off on thier own as well.  If Miles was hip to Jimi, than he should have heard the auditory blueprint of Jimi's music going back to his first album, Are You Experienced?

Jimy Bleu from 89.1 WFDU will be on hand to talk about Jimi's connection to fusion.  Jimy can be heard every Tuesday from 1:00 - 3:45 pm on WFDU (89.1) in the tri-state area (NY, NJ, Conn.) or worldwide at: http://www.wfdu.fm
