Half Hour With Your Artist: Today with Jimi Hendrix (Jan/04/2019)

Half Hour With Your Artist: Today with Jimi Hendrix (Jan/04/2019)
Hello again and welcome to Half Hour With Your Artist. I'm Fidel Benitez Corrales and today we're going to spend 30 minutes with Jimi Hendrix. Consistently named the greatest guitar player of all time by pretty much every publication that has ever compiled such a list, Jimi Hendrix combined untouchable virtuosity, an improvisational spirit and poignant soul every time he picked up the instrument. But Hendrix was more than just a badass axeman: He combined undeniable songwriting talent, a great ear for melody and a love of music rooted in tradition but with a definite slant towards experimentation and desire to break new ground in the studio.

This is a space that discloses the best of music, where interpreters are treated and covers topics such as genres, rhythms, musical instruments, etc.

This set contains 9 songs







JIMI HENDRIX’S "OFFICIAL" RECORDING CAREER LASTED ALMOST EXACTLY FOUR YEARS. The first two were marked by a Herculean work-rate and awe-inspiring artistic progression. The last two were a morass of indecision, lack of direction, and encroaching depression, accompanied by a dedication to his craft that was even more admirable under the adverse circumstances.

When he died in September 1970, all the talk was about what might have been. In his own mind, though, Jimi had long regarded himself as a failure, unable to build on the creative and commercial success of his first three albums - unable, in fact, even to complete a single studio project since then.

Jimi’s untimely demise marked the beginning of a long-term exploitation exercise that has spawned literally scores of albums since 1970. The initial rush to cash in on his death was predictable, but the subsequent saturation of the market demonstrated Hendrix’s catch-all appeal to several generations of rock fans, from his original admirers to those who were born years after he choked to death in a London hotel.

There are currently well over 100 ‘legal’ Jimi Hendrix CDs available in shops and on websites, plus twice as many again on the underground bootleg circuit.
