Blue Monday – Jimi Hendrix

The last two Blue Monday’s have featured Rory Gallagher and Stevie Ray Vaughan so I thought it only fair this week to feature the master Jimi Hendrix

A bit like Ella yesterday there is not much to be said about Jimi that hasn’t been said before and the web is full of information.

For me, my introduction to his music was through his “Hendrix In The West”  live album which was released posthumously in 1972 and featured music from concerts in 1969 and 1970.

Here is a song later covered by Eric Clapton on his superb Rainbow  Concert live album.

“Little Wing” – Jimi Hendrix

Hendrix stretched and merged the music genres of jazz, blues and rock throughout his career, many of his more traditional blues performances were later compiled as, surprisingly, the “Blues” album

I think my favourite blues performance from Hendrix is this version of  “Hear My Train A Comin'” from the Motion Picture “JImi Hendrix”
