Jimi Hendrix Tribute: Red House
by Gil Kaufman in Music
I don't normally go see cover acts, mostly because of the constant belly aching from my friends in "real" bands about how those "Freebird" playing yahoos are always taking money out of their pockets. And after getting burned one too many times by lame tribute acts (OK, just that once, but you know who you are and you should be ashamed!), I was wary of the "Experience Hendrix" tribute tour because I love Jimi Hendrix and refuse to let some hack ruin him for me.

ALBANY -- Jimi Hendrix died 40 years ago. And guitar players are still trying to figure out how he made his guitar sing like it did.
On Saturday night at the Palace Theatre, there was a nonstop parade of all-star guitarslingers tearing through the Hendrix songbook. Not just good guitarists. These were some of the cream of the crop out there today -- Steve Vai, Eric Johnson, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Jonny Lang, Ernie Isley and more -- attempting to conjure up Hendrixian magic out of their six strings.

It’s hard to imagine, from to-day’s vantage point, what popular music might sound like had there never been a Jimi Hendrix. The entire paradigm of blues-based rock soloing as we now understand it would not exist. Hendrix was not some mere blues-rock fusion artist hell-bent on showing off his chops, of course. He was a supremely gifted composer and songwriter, a man able to imbue the psychedelic music of the ’60s with a seriously deep African-American strain, and journeyman R&B guitarist, all rolled into one.
