Jazz Trio Pays Tribute To Jimi Hendrix...Again!
This isn't the first time Lonnie Smith has released an album dedicated to guitar great Jimi Hendrix. As with Purple Haze, guitarist John Abercrombie and drummer Marvin "Smitty" Smith backed up Smith for his first tip of the hat to Hendrix on Foxy Lady. It was so successful Smith went forward with a new tribute - Purple Haze.
"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. " Leo Stanley, allmusic.com
