Martin Scorsese Presents the Blues: Jimi Hendrix

If you don’t hear the blues influence in Jimi Hendrix’s music, you’d better get your ears checked. No rock icon symbolizes how deeply blues has affected rock than this brilliant guitarist, whose three short years in the spotlight permanently changed the face of popular music. While no player ever utilized the technological innovations of electric instrumentation quite like Hendrix, the expressive power of his inimitable sound owes everything to good, old-fashioned blues. For proof, hear any of these lapel-grabbing performances, each mating elemental tradition with startling innovation. Hendrix was a musical sponge, and by the time he began recording in 1966 he had thoroughly absorbed the teachings of the blues through recordings and continual on-the-road experience. This education is part and parcel of such classic performances as "Red House,” “Voodoo Chile,” and “Hear My Train A’ Coming” -- all drip with the open emotions of the blues, as well as reconfigured guitar licks and vocal inflections that hint at the genre’s very beginnings. As a special treat, two previously unreleased tracks, “Georgia Blues” and “Blue Window,” are included.
