I was just listening to WMBR (local radio station in Cambridge, MA) and a blues song came on. I wasn’t paying much attention until the guitar solo came in. The player was really good and clearly influenced by Jimi Hendrix. He even played one of my favorite little Hendrixisms which I’ve been focusing on a lot recently (you can hear it at around 1:54 in the video below). After the song was over I found out it was a Curtis Knight recording… then I realized, “Oh yeah, that guitarist sounds like Jimi cause he *is* Jimi”. It’s pretty cool hearing earlier recordings of Hendrix. His style was very distinctive even early in his career and even when he was being reigned in by control freak front men.
