Super Special Thanks to Terri Lyne Carrington for her deep involvement in this Experience.

    Music has its Gods and Myths, and Jimi Hendrix is one of them. While each note of his is still burning, I play his music with the same freedom and dedication as a jazzman will play a standard. Thus taking possession of his mythical songs, making them mine, as I always do. And giving voice to Electric Ladies from the wide world to reveal a new Experience.

    Music has no end. Once created, it belongs to those who dream with it.
