Jazz Guitars Meet Hendrix is a project featuring soulful renditions of Jimi’s music interpreted by two of today’s most progressive and inventive guitarists, Sheryl Bailey and Vic Juris.
Two jazz stalwarts, drummer Anthony Pinciotti and organist Brian Charette, join Bailey and Juris in creating a synergistic sound that’s eliciting accolades from jazz and rock fans alike. “I believe we captured the essence of Jimi’s blues and rock while exploring the free and psychedelic feeling of his experimental side,” explains Bailey, who is quick to add, “This is not a cover band.” True enough. The group’s energy and innovative renditions of Jimi Hendrix’s compositions have musicians and fans speculating that Jazz Guitars Meet Hendrix is emblematic of what could have been Jimi’s destination. The Hendrix spirit lives in these powerful, provocative and passionate performances. They are much more than an homage, they are part of the Jimi Hendrix continuum.
With “Chops up the wazoo... and a surplus of fire and intensity” (Guitar Player), iconoclastic and prolific jazz-rock guitarist David ‘Fuze’ Fiuczynsk has been hailed by the world press as an incredibly inventive guitar hero who continues to deliver with music that is unclassifiable, challenging and invigorating. An innovative musician who has released nine CDs and a double live DVD, Fuze is best known as the leader of the Screaming Headless Torsos. At 92YTribeca, he will present new music from his upcoming MicroJam CD with the Berklee Planet MicroJam Institute ensemble featuring Fiuczynski on fretted and fretless guitars, Utar Dundarartun on microtonal keyboards, Will Lydgate on bass and Alex "Bisquit" Bailey on drums. Filled with new musical ideas at the crossroads of new beats, microtonal harmonies and Eastern melodic inflections and improv concepts, the aim of Fiuczynski's MicroJam is to create music that sounds like a Gauguin painting—a raw, powerful, extremely colorful mix of Eastern and Western elements.
