Amazing! It’s really hard to believe that the only instruments on Bromberg Plays Hendrix is bass and drums. This is a great tribute to Jimi Hendrix from Brian Bromberg himself. If you are a fan of Jimi Hendrix, you definitely need to check this out.
Complete with chords, solos, and sporadic vocals here and there, this has to be one of the best recordings of Hendrix tunes I have personally ever heard, with the exception of Hendrix himself of course. Melodies are right on and will have you singing along, even when the vocals are not present.
Brian is doing all of the bass work from the ground up without missing a beat and the incredible Vinnie Colaita is on drums. As there are no guitars on this release, all the bass work is done with piccolo basses and traditional basses. Brian’s technique also shines as well, there were no picks present nor harmed during the creation of Bromberg Plays Hendrix. All finger technique here guys and gals, so give it a spin. Bromberg Plays Hendrix is available on iTunes and from amazon.
