M.Dorendorf plays HendrixM.Dorendorf plays Hendrix ! LIVE im ROCKMUSEUM MÜNCHEN Samstag, 22.10.2016, 20 Uhr:
Good-bye Jimi Hendrix! MARC DORENDORF PLAYS HENDRIX - ein letztes mal im Rockmuseum Munich Die Musik von Jimi Hendrix nachzuspielen, ist alles andere als leicht. Viele haben es versucht, viele sind gescheitert. Inzwischen ganz oben auf der Liste der Gewinner: Der Münchner Gitarrist Marc Dorendorf. Er hat sich Original-Instrumente und Original-Verstärker aus Jimis Zeiten verschafft, bringt den Sound von damals also so echt wie nur irgendwie möglich rüber. Und zwar nicht nur mit Hits wie "Hey Joe", "All Along The Watchtower" oder " The Wind Cries Mary", sondern auch und besonders mit nicht so oft gehörten Titeln. Bei ihm und seiner Band geht es schon immer um mehr als um billige Show-Erfolge, sondern wirklich darum, die Musik von Hendrix zu ergründen und ins Hier und Jetzt zu transportieren. Ein Abend für Kenner und Liebhaber. Nach diesem Konzert geht Schlagzeuger Joe Kidd in die USA. Ohne ihn will Dorendorf in Sachen Hendrix nimmer weitermachen, weil sein Trommelspiel unersetzlich ist. Daher ist dies wohl das vorerst letzte Hendrix-Live-Programm von Marc Dorendorf. Genießt es!

Tickets (inkl. VVK-Gebühr und Liftauffahrt auf den Olympiaturm) überall, wo es Tickets gibt, Flatrate EUR 20,--. Auch per Telefon oder Internet bei MünchenTicket (www.muenchenticket.de). Oder an der Abendkasse am Veranstaltungstag. Wenn"s dann noch nicht zu spät ist.

Now in its second decade, the Experience Hendrix tribute tour heads out on a 29 date tour in 2017 continuing to celebrate the musical genius of Jimi Hendrix by bringing together a diverse array of musicians, ranging from blues legend Buddy Guy to Black Label Society and former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Zakk Wylde, as well as Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Dweezil Zappa, Keb' Mo', Doyle Bramhall II, Ana Popovic, The Slide Brothers, Mato Nanji from Indigenous, and Beth Hart will also be featured among many others. Once again Billy Cox and former Stevie Ray Vaughan Double Trouble drummer Chris Layton anchor the rhythm section that provides the foundation.
The Experience Hendrix Tour continues to expand as Jimi's legacy grows. In 2004, the first tour came to fruition with a three-date string of shows on the west coast, starting in Hendrix's hometown of Seattle. By 2008, the Experience Hendrix Tour had become a full-fledged, coast-to-coast expedition and continuing to date without showing any signs of slowing down. Audiences are presented the opportunity to see great artists paying homage to Hendrix while collaborating with each other in ways they'd never do in their own live shows.
Multiple Grammy Award winner and Kennedy Center Honoree Buddy Guy, whose involvement in music pre-dates even that of Hendrix, shed light on his personal friend, 'He was so creative, especially everything he did with the special effects. He took it all to this other place, and he could really play. He was one of a kind. Hendrix brings us together, everybody on this tour.'
Experience Hendrix Tour veteran Zakk Wylde, who named his own son 'Hendrix,' spoke about being on the road with the other musicians. 'When you listen to all the fellas and the gals that are out there on the tour, it isn't just the great solos. They are great songs, you know. It's not just about shredding. I'm totally honored to be part of it.'
Kenny Wayne Shepherd, who has closed every show he's ever played since the age of 15 with the Jimi Hendrix Experience's 'Voodoo Child (Slight Return),' commented, 'The music of Jimi Hendrix has always been a large influence on my life and music ' in no small part due to his blues roots. He showed a lot of his influences and the foundation from which he built his music.' He went on to say, 'Jimi Hendrix was one of the greatest performers, entertainers and songwriters of all time, but as far as the guitar goes, he made a statement with his instrument that has yet to be matched.'
2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the Jimi Hendrix Experience's debut album Are You Experienced (released on May 12, 1967) as well as the follow up album Axis: Bold as Love (released in the UK on December 1, 1967). 1967 was also the year Jimi Hendrix rose to intercontinental prominence, when he made his U.S. debut at the Monterey International Pop Music Festival, lighting his guitar on fire to a mesmerized audience. The repertoire from this stage of Jimi's career serves as a cornerstone in Experience Hendrix Tour sets, as songs like 'Fire,' 'Manic Depression,' and 'Are You Experienced' are played by various musicians on a nightly basis.
During his lifetime, Jimi Hendrix always used the live performance context as a platform for exploration. The fact is evidenced by the release this week of the new live album Machine Gun: The First Fillmore East Show 12/31/1969. The album is a thorough document of Hendrix's Band of Gypsys' first concert ever, in its entirety. This trio of Jimi, Buddy Miles and Billy Cox was short lived, but left an indelible mark on music by combining funk, rock and soul at a time when all three genres were in their formative stages. It's expected that some of the songs featured on the Machine Gun album, including 'Hear My Train A Comin',' and 'Power of Soul,' will be heard on the Experience Hendrix Tour. Experience Hendrix, L.L.C. and Legacy Recordings are releasing the album, on CD, LP and digitally this Friday, September 30. Fans will get the latest Jimi Hendrix CD Machine Gun: Fillmore East First Show 12/31/69 with their purchase of a pair of tickets from participating venues. Every pair of tickets purchased comes with one (1) physical CD of the new Jimi Hendrix album, Machine Gun scheduled to be released on September 30th, 2016. Check local listings for details.

"Hi . My latest e book is now available in all parts of the world from the Kindle Book Store. It"s "Voodoo Child" by Dave Mort. I think you might be interested as it covers the evolution of blues, folk, r n b, rock n roll, soul and rock music. You can purchase it from the Amazon Kindle site but if you don"t have one you can download the app for free and read it on any device. Intro is below
"Musicians are special as they emotionally connect with the listener using a unique set of vibrations known as music, and as this is the only universal language it is therefore the one most likely to promote peace and love. But their individual performances are not necessarily unique, as they often act as conduits through which those top flight deceased musicians deemed Aces, Kings and Queens, pass on their sympathetic resonance.
Voodoo Child by Dave MortMany acknowledge Ike Turner"s "Rocket 88" as being a seminal rock n roll recording, but before heading for the studio, Ike rehearsed the number in the Riverside Hotel, Clarksdale. So what, you might think until you discover that this particular hotel used to be a hospital, the one that blues diva Bessie Smith was taken to after her car crash in 1937. They had to amputate her arm but she died on the operating table, and as a "Queen," her soul was immediately commandeered to play for the "ARKestra Paradiso." Consequently, when Ike and his bandmates rehearsed the number fifteen years later in the same room, they were undoubtedly picking up on her vibe. Another seminal recording was "Rock Around the Clock" but how many know the name of the guitarist who supplied the paint blistering, guitar run in the middle, the one that would encourage so many to take up the instrument. He wasn"t a member of Bill Haley"s "Comets" and, rather embarrassingly, didn"t feature in their live appearances. He was a session musician named Danny Cedrone, an Italian American, who also played on Haley"s cover of "Rocket 88." But as influential as his guitar work would become, he wasn"t acting alone, as he was picking up on resonance from two "Aces of Wands" already playing for the "ARKestra Paradiso." One was another Italian American named Eddie Lang who died in 1933, aged 30 in a botched operation. The other was an African American named Charlie Christian who passed over to the "ARKestra" in "42, at the tender age of 25. Danny also died young, at 33, not long after recording "Rock Around the Clock," after falling downstairs in a restaurant. Accident maybe, but perhaps his soul had also been "claimed."
One of rock music"s more iconic images is that of Jimi Hendrix onstage at the Monterey Pop Festival in "67, kneeling over the remains of his burning guitar after his performance of "Wild Thing." He was beckoning the flames to rise as if summoning up demons and dragons from hell which is what several fans described as witnessing after ingesting "Monterey Purple" a strain of LSD concocted especially for the event. Thirty years earlier a bluesman by the name of Robert Johnson supposedly made a pact with the Devil at the crossroads in return for becoming an Ace" on the guitar. So perhaps Jimi had made a similar pact as both their souls were claimed at the age of 27. And before Robert there was another "Ace" named Charlie Patton who like Jimi could play the guitar behind his back, above his head and with his teeth. And before Jimi there was T Bone Walker who performed in a similar fashion. And as these three musicians were African Americans with Cherokee ancestors perhaps they"d inherited an added spiritual dimension.
By the time Robert Johnson made his supposed pact however the myth was already as old as the hills. The fact is that most blues musicians were itinerants who"d chosen a life on the road over a mundane, family or domestic existence, leading loved ones to conclude they were dancing to the devil"s tune.
For the purposes of my story, which traces the evolution of popular music from the Mississippi flood of "27 to the deaths of Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison, all those musicians deemed "Aces" "Kings" or "Queens," had made similar pacts with the devil. Artists such as Eddy Lang, Charlie Christian, Elvis, Buddy Holly, Bessie Smith, Eddie Cochran, Billie Holiday, Sam Cooke and Otis Redding, who when their respective souls passed over, often after meeting a violent death at an early age, could be claimed to play for the "ARKestra Paradiso. This "ARKestra," so called because it boasts two players per instrument, performs in a room whose walls are made of a membrane fashioned from tightly stretched goat skin or vellum. Therefore, it can pick up on sound waves travelling through air and water. This room is situated in an old slave ship named "the Paradiso" which floats on a giant underground lake, so can detect vibrations through its wood, taut ropes or sheets, and surroundings. This lake is in a giant cavern known as the Orpheus chamber, situated deep inside a mountain, home to stalactites, stalagmites and crystalline, flower like structures named anthodites, which also pick up on vibrations passing through rock. Consequently, these musicians are performing in a closed environment that resonates like a gigantic bell, thereby creating a wall of sound. The "ARKestra" is composed of pairs of those musicians deemed "Aces," "Kings" or "Queens," plucked from the flood of misery that segregation created to help change the New World for the better. They mentor and sympathetically resonate with musicians still alive and working through their performances and recordings seek to create a new vibe called the "big beat" woven from different strands of music. The old slave ship "Paradiso," is also home to the largest record repository in the world. Known as the "ARKhive" it comprises two copies of all the recordings ever made in the New World arranged year by year in the aisles of the original slave hold."
