LITTLE KNOWN 1968 LIVE JAM SESSION WITH HENDRIX AND HIS BUDDIES • Recorded on March 17, 1968 at the Cafe Au Go Go in New York, these half-dozen largely instrumental jams feature Jimi Hendrix playing with Paul Butterfield (vocals and harmonica), Elvin Bishop (guitar), Harvey Brooks (bass), Herbie Rich (keyboards and sax), and Buddy Miles (drums). • Hendrix and the Experience were in New York recording what was to become Electric Ladyland at the newly opened Record Plant Studios, when one evening Jimi climbed onstage at the famous Soho venue to perform with the esteemed musicians listed above, for what was essentially a spontaneous show, and which was recorded for a live FM Radio Broadcast across New York State and its surrounds. • For the most part, the musicians stuck to basic blues progressions around which to improvise, and though the playing is both flashy and solid, it reveals an elegant chemistry amongst the band and gets more interesting as the gig progresses, and Jimi finally takes off into some truly inspired soloing on ‘Jamming Wing,’ presumably so named for its resemblance to ‘Little Wing’. • Previously unreleased, this new release features the full dynamic performance delivered this early spring evening in a small New York club, more than 50 years ago. •
