Yes, Jimi, Stanley Jordan is experienced. The jazz legend has 4 Grammy nominations, numerous film and television appearances, and collaborations with artists like Miles Davis and Dizzy Gillespie under his belt. But he says it was hearing the music of Jimi Hendrix that first inspired him to pick up a guitar.
This show is more than just a set of covers; it is a concept performance wherein Jordan channels Hendrix’s persona and presents what he imagines a modern Hendrix concert would sound like. Jordan incorporates many of the rock star’s techniques while expanding on them in a way Hendrix may have if he were alive today.
