    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 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.

WHY?

    Jimi Hendrix and Curtis Knight--Hip-Hop edition

    in Books

    As the author of Nobody Cages Me, I dived into Jimi's connection with other genres outside of Rock.  One of those genres was Hip-Hop.  I showed how Jimi's seminal Hip-Hop song, Dorella Du Fointaine led to his embrace by the Hip-Hop community vis a vis sampling, fashion and swagger.  Jimi's R&B roots, along with his time playing with The Band of Gypsys were highlighted as some of his Funkiest music.  Although I briefly touched on it in Nobody Cages Me, I wanted to showcase Jimi's time period with Curtis Knight.  He played with Curtis before and after he left for England.  Although his legal entanglements with Ed Chalpin and PPX studios marrs his sessions there, I want to give credit to some of these sessions for producing some of the Funkiest music known to man.  I recently went digging in my tape stash and found some Jimi Hendrix Hip-Hop music I produced around 2005.  Five years before I wrote Nobody Cages Me, I would dabble with my sample machine and have fun.  There is no extra drum machine involved.  All instruments are from Jimi's sessions at PPX studios.  It proves how far advanced he was for his time.  It also shows that he was the earliest master of the Wah-Wah pedal.  Disreguard the pedestrian Rapping skills and enjoy the sounds of Jimi.


     


    P.S.--Jimi is playing that funky bass line in addition to that funky Wah-Wah!!
