Personnel: Larry Coryell (guitar); Mervin Bronson (bass); Harry Wilkinson (drums).
No one, not even Robin Trower, embodied the essence of Jimi Hendrix's playing like this under-recognized guitar god. Recorded only four months after Jimi's death, this powerful performance for an appreciative New York crowd has his spirit and some of his chops shot through it. Rock-solid bassist Mervin Bronson and inventive drummer Harry Wilkinson, longtime sidemen for their fleet-fingered frontman, give him all the freedom he needs to crunch his chords, as well as veer off on some jazzy tangents. ~ Mark Allan
