The collection rocks hard as Bromberg innovatively crafted smoldering versions of Hendrix’s hallmark hits including “Fire,” “Manic Depression,” “The Wind Cries Mary,” “All Along The Watchtower,” “Foxey Lady” and “Purple Haze.” “It sounds live yet it was all overdubs.

“A few really amazing things happened to me when I was recording those tracks with my father; those tracks originally were recorded before I was born, so it was such a trip playing with my Dad before I was even on this planet! When I was playing with him I realized at that moment where I got my time feel and swing from, it was effortless to play with him, mind-blowing actually.”

On Bromberg Plays Hendrix, bassist Brian Bromberg doesn’t utilize the electric guitar at all, but it’s hard to tell. A tribute to one of the world’s most inventive guitarists could only be honored by doing something completely different from what is expected. Bromberg manages this on both acoustic and electric piccolo bass. Whether covering sonic blasts like “Fire” and “Purple Haze” or the melancholia of “The Wind Cries Mary,” Bromberg and drummer Vinnie Colaiuta make this a worthwhile endeavor that stands up to repeated listening. –AllMusic Review by Al Campbell
