Purple Haze: A Tribute to Jimi Hendrix Lonnie Smith Trio Primary Artist
Shop on Barnes & Noble


In the early '70s, Lonnie Smith's recordings frequently exhibited a debt to {|Jimi Hendrix's|} groundbreaking fusions, but he waited until 1995 to release Foxy Lady, a full-fledged tribute to the innovative guitarist. Foxy Lady was so successful that Smith decided to make another Hendrix album, again with {|John Abercrombie|} and {|Marvin Smitty Smith|}. Purple Haze is as entertaining as Foxy Lady -- it's truly remarkable to hear how these blues-rockers can open up into soul-jazz numbers tinged with free jazz influences -- and confirms not only Hendrix's composing talents, but also Smith's vision.
