In The Stone

Another great Earth Wind and Fire track

In Your Eyes

One of the R&B tracks off the Smile album. Feat Laura on vocals

It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)

We all like music that swings, this one introduced the world to the notion of swing and presaged the swing era by three years. I keep close to the sentiment of the original, it pushed the envelope with some crazy horn parts as it steam rollered along! This is another signature tune of the Duke Ellington orchestra, along with Take The A Train which I have also have covered. It Don't Mean a Thing was written in 1931 by Duke Ellington with lyrics by Irving Mills

James

I have to admit to not being a Pat Metheny fan. Not that I don't rate him, I just don't know much about him. When I heard this track I just knew I wanted to cover it. This is from Offramp is the Grammy Award winning third album by Pat Metheny Group, released in 1982

Jazz@Funk

Funky time! This track features Alan Corne on drums

Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis Collaboration # Little Wing

Suppose Miles Davis brought his distinctive muted trumpet to one of Jimi Hendrix's most lyrical tracks? I play or sequence all instruments on this pastiche in the style of Little Wing. This original track is one of every guitar players' favourite Hendrix tracks. Little Wing is the classic example of Hendrix's rhythm guitar playing, a skill he was totally underrated for, but only because his lead guitar playing was so outstanding. Rhythm guitar playing by definition belongs to the backing section, Jimi understood that from his days backing the likes of Tina Turner, James Brown, and the Isley Bros. earlier in his career.

Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis Collaboration # Big Time

What if Jimi and Miles Davis had collaborated in the 80's? It would sound modern for sure. Marcus Miller would be producer and playing bass. I play or sequence all instruments on this pastiche in the style of Big Time. The actual Miles classic track 'Big Time' is on the 1989 Amandla album. My Big Time groove has some orchestral hits like on another Marcus/Miles track Tutu (the title track of Miles' Tutu album).

Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis Collaboration # Fire

What if Jimi and Miles Davis played with Fire? Sparks would fly! I play or sequence all instruments on this pastiche in the style of Fire. Fire was one of Hendrix's most popular songs, he frequently played it in concert. It was written by Jimi Hendrix and first recorded by the Jimi Hendrix Experience in early 1967.

Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis Collaboration # So What?

What if Jimi Hendrix played a groove like So What? In the 80's it would be more modern, tighter, and with a synth bass line! It might even be smooth jazz. Why not? Some Little Wing style rhythm guitar would fit perfectly. I play or sequence all instruments on this pastiche in the style of So What

Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis Collaboration # Third Stone from the Sun

What if Jimi and Miles had collaborated in the 80's in the style of Jimi's "3rd Stone from the Sun" track? Marcus Miller would be the producer and playing double bass (he did a version on his Jaco album). I play or sequence all instruments on this pastiche in the style of 3rd Stone.

Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis Collaboration #1 Right Off

The greatest ever collaboration that never happened. I play Jimi style over Mile's track 'Right off' from his album 'jack johnson'

Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis Collaboration #2 If 6 were 9

This is what it might have sounded like had Jimi survived to play with Miles Davis during Miles' Tutu/Amandla period (1986). For the first time Miles could embrace synthesizers, sequencing, and drum machines. No doubt Jimi would have too. Add to that a producer who could play bass every bit as well as he could produce, Marcus Miller, and you have a recipe for some awesome music. On this track I play guitars and sequence Miles trumpet. I am ably assisted by the immensely talented Steve Shone on bass. Don't miss his bass solo at 3 minutes in, Marcus would be proud!

Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis Collaboration #3 Foxy Ladies

WHAT IF... Jimi and Miles had played together on a high energy instrumental in the style of Foxy Lady? I play or sequence all instruments on my pastiche in the style of the classic track off Jimi's 1967 debut album Are You Experienced. This is my respectful imagining of just one possible outcome. Miles and Jimi would have undoubtedly brought their energy to play off each other. As I create these Jimi and Miles Collab's I think I get closer to the spirit of what they would sound like together. I feel this one is the best yet at weaving the two together.

Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis Collaboration #4 Voodoo Chile

What if... Miles and Jimi run the voodoo down on a groove similar to Jimi's classic Voodoo Child in the 1980's? Miles did a track called "Miles runs the Voodoo down" on Bitches Brew (1970). It was limited by recording keyboard technology. I conceive a groove that morphs into an authentic late 1970's Jazz/Rock/Funk/Fusion piece using technology Miles and Jimi never had! I play or sequence all instruments except bass (where I am nobly assisted by Steve Shone). Steve's brief was to throw in some Marcus Miller and Jaco Pastorius in, which he did with his usual expertise.

Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis Collaboration #5 In a Silent Way

What if... Miles and Jimi collaborated on the classic Miles track "In a Silent Way"? Jimi could carry a tune, as proven by his rendition of "Star Spangled Banner". The melody to "In a Silent Way" is a lot tougher than that, mainly because it is really slow and stops/starts throughout. However, I have no doubt Jimi would excel on it. I speculate their version would not be a million miles away from this. This track known as "In a Silent Way" was off the Miles Davis album of that name and is actually called "It's about Time". It was written by Joe Zawinul (later of Weather Report). I play or sequence all instruments on this pastiche in the style of In a Silent Way.

Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis Collaboration #6 Purple Haze

If Jimi and Miles had done a track in the style of Purple Haze in the 80's, they would have embraced synthesisers and funk. By then Jimi would probably be bored playing that iconic guitar riff motif at every gig, so I let the synth voice do a riff like it. People don't give Jimi credit for his fine rhythm guitar. It was a huge part of his 'game', in its own way as iconic as Nile Rodgers. I think Jimi would have played funk rhythm guitar on this, so I do!

Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis Collaboration #7 Tutu

If only Jimi had played on the Miles Davis 1986 album Tutu along with Marcus Miller. How brilliant that would be! Miles won a Grammy for his performance, Marcus Miller wrote and produced, it was as near perfect as an album can be. The only conceivable improvement would have been the addition of Jimi's energy! Ahhh. If only... I play or sequence all instruments on this pastiche in the style of Tutu

Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis Collaboration #8 Hey Joe

The classic Jimi groove revisited with a Miles solo at the end. I play or sequence all instruments on this pastiche in the style of Hey Joe.

Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis Collaboration #9 Castles Made of Sand

Had Jimi and Miles did a track in the style of Castles Made of Sand, one of Hendrix's most beautiful, they would have captured its wistful qualities for sure. The track relies on Jimi's own distinctive brand of rhythm guitar playing that was both lyrical and melodic. Miles' horn would certainly have complimented that. I play or sequence all instruments on this pastiche in the style of Castles Made of Sand.
