E for effort, B for boring
on October 15, 2012
Yes, Bromberg is an excellent bass player. And technically, he does a nice job playing these classic Hendrix songs. Worth a listen. One listen. But that's it. Pretty boring. Ya gotta really like hearing the bass as the lead instrument. Perhaps the bigger problem is Bromberg really thinking he could do Hendrix. No legitimate guitarist would dare try it. Guess he thinks the bass is different enough not to beg comparison. Perhaps he thought so. I don't. At times this almost sounds like musak. Best just stick to jazz.
