Today’s interview with the Turtle Island Quartet made me appreciate not only Turtle Island’s music better, but I think it helped me appreciate jazz and Hendrix even more, too. It was great fun having them in our performance studio – they were so engaging and passionate about the music (theirs AND Hendrix’s). And personally, I was thrilled when they demonstrated the “Hendrix chord.”
Find their CD, “Have You Ever Been…?” on their web site. And for fun, check out the official Jimi Hendrix site – it’s too late to catch the “Experience Hendrix” tour this year, but you can find a bio, music, and fun photos of the rock legend. Enjoy!
Here is a video of some of the conversation and performance by The Turtle Island Quartet.
