When an intensely creative and prolific artist such as Brian Bromberg decides to devote two full releases to the music of (or inspired by) another creative, you can imagine the respect is deep and the results bound to be at least interesting, if not amazing. Prepare for amazement then, please. Bassist virtuoso, producer/composer Bromberg has embraced the repertoire of two icons, Jimi Hendrix and Antonio Carlos Jobim. The interpretations are heartfelt, inspired and immense in musicality. The Hendrix set is notable for the fact there is no guitar on it - "just" Brian's unique basses and flying fingers, and monster drummer Vinnie Colaiuta; kind of an "Interstellar Space" diets but in Jimi's incandescent tuneage.
