Christy Doran (guitar) and Fredy Studer (drums/percussion) were founding members of the 70's Swiss group OM and have played together ever since. Here, with other highly accomplished musicians, they take Jimi's music completely apart to rebuild it in their own abstract improvisational style. Doran's superb guitar is only a componant part of the rich and varied instrumentation and keyboard player Django Bates doubles on tenor horn. Some totally wild and original vocals are provided by Englishman Phil Minton who stretches and twists Jimi's lyrics in all directions. In keeping with the Hendrix spirit, you never know what to expect next. "Foxy Lady" blasts in as "Beginning", "Up From The Skies" ends as "Wind Cries Mary". "Are You Experienced" has an nice lilting interlude of "1983". "Hey Joe" has a slow cool jazz arrangement, punctuated by a furious complex solo from Doran. Studer plays some masterful jazzy drums and percussion but often keeping things on a steady rock trajectory as the soloists take off. A lot to discover and enjoy here.
