The three great musicians of the last century all three came to their peak in the 60s: John Coltrane, Miles Davis and Jimi Hendrix. In the totality of human musical history, you can forget about the rest of twentieth century composers, but not those three.
The disadvantage of that position, is that all kinds of third rank wannabees play tribute to them in the hope that the mere mention of the genius's name is sufficient to generate sales.
Same here: Hiram Bullock demonstrates that :
- he knows how to play guitar, but the concept of music is alien to him
- he has understood nothing of Jimi Hendrix' music
- playing with a big band is not easy
- he has bad taste.
I truly hope this album doesn't sell, although that's not a nice thing to say.
