I'm only three songs in, but they really did a great job of pulling off the Hendrix feel on these tribute tunes. Lots of energy!
(P.S. I have a thing for tribute albums - I've got all sorts, including fun/weird ones like a Gothic Tribute to the Doors and a Celtic tribute to Queen)

Interesting. I really didn't like that one much when if first came out, may need to revisit it one of these days, it's in the shelves somehwere.

I'm not really big on tribute albums. I think one of my favorites is a recently released one of Bob Dylan 'eighties music, and one reason I like it a lot is that there's a cadre of musicians shared on a lot of the tunes giving it a homogeneity that is lacking in a lot of compilations and tribute albums. I prefer this homogeneity to the wide variances you can find from track to track on many of these.

Right now, back at my foks. Oddly, though my folks don't lke a lot of jazz for the most part any longer (they did when I was younger, that's partly where I got the love) they love Earl Hines, which makes sense as he is both traditional AND modern, through and through. Genius.

I've fallen in love with this album when I found this, the original Philips cd. The US Verve/MCA cd sounds much more congested and a bit harsh in comparison. This one sounds just wonderful, and I love the music and the arrangements. As with many of these arrangements in the past they seemed too baroque and perhaps easy listening to me, but as I have assimilated Jobim's music over the years they now seem, like Goldilock's porridge, just right.

If you like the band Wilco, and you haven't seen the documentary "I am trying to break your heart", definitely check it out.  Bonus if you have Amazon Prime as you can stream it for free.

I love the way Big John's organ and the tenor saxophone generally blend. Sure, RVG may have been in large part responsible, but it's a neat accomplishment.

@ Dave1210 ... regarding Wilco, I just picked up Being There in 88/24 hi-res from HD Tracks.  I've never heard their music to be honest and picked it up on a whim.  So far I'm liking it and "Outtasite (Outta Mind)" stood out to me thus far, but I'm going to give it a few more spins.

Beowulf...that's a great song.  My top of mind favorites on the album are "Sunken Treasure" and "Misunderstood".  Overall, 'Being There' is in the Top 3 Wilco albums for me, along with 'Yankee Hotel Foxtrot' and 'Summerteeth'.  Enjoy!

I've tried Wilco. Doesn't do much for me. Smiley We all like different stuff. Which is great!

Playing the Mobile Fidelity silver cd of this (I also have the US Columbia cd). Getting ready for the Mosaic Clooney set which has just shipped. My Mom is a big Clooney fan, I'm hopint to surprise her with the new set.
