AMERICAN MASTERS
Jimi Hendrix

 

Electric guitarist Jimi Hendrix had only four years of mainstream exposure and recognition (1967-1970), but his influential music and riveting stage presence left an enduring legacy. The program uses Hendrix’s own words to tell his story, illustrated through archival interviews and new commentary from family, friends and band members, including Noel Redding, Mitch Mitchell and Billy Cox, along with fellow musicians Paul McCartney, Steve Winwood, Billy Gibbons and Dave Mason.

 

Joe Bonamassa:
Muddy Wolf at Red Rocks


Guitar hero Joe Bonamassa performs at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado in a concert celebrating the music of blues legends Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf. The setlist is primarily sourced from the catalogs of Howlin’ Wolf, one of the most influential Chicago bluesmen of all time, and Muddy Waters, considered the “father of modern Chicago blues” and a major inspiration for the British blues explosion of the 1960s. Bonamassa grew up with that genre which influences his own music to this day. Bonamassa also performs songs from his own extensive catalog.
