    Jimi Hendrix Protege--Velvert Turner

    in Rock Music

    If you know about Jimi Hendrix, you should know about his #1 protege, Velvert Turner.  Velvert is no longer with us to discuss his time with Jimi, so we have to listen to his music to fill in the gaps.  What is so remarkable about Velvert is his vocal reflection of Jimi.  If you are not listening carefully, you might think that Jimi made a few extra records.  Velvert Turner was actually part of The Velvert Turner Group in the 70's, releasing his album in 1972.  We will preview tracks from that release and discuss Velvert.

    JHBLS- Jimi Hendrix- Architect of Jazz Fusion

    in Music

    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

    JIMI HENDRIX

    in Music

    James Marshall "Jimi" Hendrix (born Johnny Allen Hendrix; November 27, 1942 – September 18, 1970) was an American guitarist, singer and songwriter. He is often considered to be the greatest electric guitarist in the history of rock music by other musicians and commentators in the industry,and one of the most important and influential musicians of his era across a range of genres. After initial success in Europe, he achieved fame in the United States following his 1967 performance at the Monterey Pop Festival. Later, Hendrix headlined the iconic 1969 Woodstock Festival and the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival. Hendrix often favored raw overdriven amplifiers with high gain and treble and helped develop the previously undesirable technique of guitar amplifier feedback.Hendrix was one of the musicians who popularized the wah-wah pedal in mainstream rock which he often used to deliver an exaggerated pitch in his solos, particularly with high bends and use of legato based around the pentatonic scale. He was influenced by blues artists such as B.B. King, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Albert King, and Elmore James,rhythm and blues and soul guitarists Curtis Mayfield, Steve Cropper, as well as by some modern jazz.In 1966, Hendrix, who played and recorded with Little Richard's band from 1964 to 1965, was quoted as saying, "I want to do with my guitar what Little Richard does with his voice."

    Episode 317: Naval Presence and National Strategy, with Jerry Hendrix

    in Military

    From the same school as "If you want peace, prepare for war," a global maritime power must maintain a presence at sea. It must design a national strategy in line with its economic capability and political will, and make sure it mans, trains, and equips its navy in line with the design.


    If presence is a critical function of a navy, how is it best accomplished, what are the tradeoffs, and how does it impact friends, competitors, and those sitting on the fence?


    Our guest for the full hour to discuss this and more will be Dr. Henry J. Hendrix, Jr, CAPT USN (Ret).


    Jerry is a Senior Fellow and the Director of the Defense Strategies and Assessments Program at the Center for a New American Security.


    When on active duty, his staff assignments include tours with the Chief of Naval Operation’s Executive Panel (N00K), and the OSD Office of Net Assessment From 2011-2012 he served as the Director and Designated Federal Officer of the Secretary of the Navy’s Advisory Panel.  He also contributed to the 2012 Department Posture Statement to the Congress.  Following the fall, 2011 Navy Inspector General’s Report on the state of the Naval History and Heritage Command, he was verbally ordered by the Secretary to assume the position of Director of Naval History. 


    Hendrix previously served as the Navy Fellow to the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs at Harvard University. He has been awarded a Bachelor Degree in Political Science from Purdue University, Masters Degrees from the Naval Postgraduate School (National Security Affairs) and Harvard University (History) and received his doctorate from King’s College, London (War Studies).
