Jimi Hendrix Tribute
This is an account of the first time I heard and met Jimi Hendrix: "The year was 1967. I was playing with Gabor Szabo at Bill Graham's Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco. "The Jefferson Airplane" also appeared, but the opening group on the bill was new to me --"Jimi Hendrix and the Experience." I remember Jimi's first tune well --"Purple Haze." Looking down from our dressing room window high above the auditorium floor, I heard echo's of the Blues-- and beyond! Like Django Reinhardt and Wes Montgomery, Jimi could make his instrument sound significant.
