No Jimi In Here
06/10/1999
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This is a documentary showing other musicians recording a tribute to Jimi Hendrix album at the end of the nineties. You get the feeling most of the musicians aren't really even that familiar with Hendix' music. I did like the Five Blind Boys From Alabama; they were working out a gospel sounding acappela version of Driftin' which sounded like it was going to be great. But none of the tracks are played as a finished product, and there is definitely no Jimi Hendrix appearing in this film. I guess they couldn't find him."
