who living or dead would you wanted to hear Jimi jam with, that he hasnt already?

Sounds strange since their styles or so radically different, but I would've loved to hear an acoustic jam between Bob marley and Jimi. That would've been cool

The Doors.

Unlike many others, i really loved the jam he had with jim morrison, drunk, singing. Sober Jimi + jim + Ray + Mitch would make my life complete.

oh yeah, I remember that! they were all so wasted but i'm glad someone captured that on tape. I wonder how that jam came to be? Did Morrison just stroll into a club one day where Jimi was performing and just hop onstage?

Miles Davis, Roland Kirk, Gil Evans & Pharoah Sanders.
Allman Brothers and Eric Clapton.
No tapes even if he played with some of them.

I'd add Carlos Santana.
It's also a pity that John McLaughlin had such a crappy guitar when he jammed with Jimi. Imagine the two of them on balanced electric guitars.

Everybody.

That's a really bad answer. But during the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame Ceremony this year, when I saw Jeff Beck bringing Sting, Billy Gibbons and Buddy Guy on stage, it made me think..."damn, too bad Jimi wasn't alive."

When you see those videos of all the blues greats jamming together...Stevie Ray Vaughan, BB King, Albert King...and Jimi isn't there, it makes me think..."damn, too bad Jimi wasn't alive."

He really just missed so much. We are lucky we had him for only the small amount of time we did. But at the same time I can't help but feel sadness when I see these other great artists playing together.

But on the other hand, when they play Hendrix tracks, it makes me feel comfort knowing how much respect they had for the man. Even the great Paul McCartney played an instrumental version of Foxy Lady during his tour this year.

Yeah, you got it, he just barged right in!

18? March 1968, Scene Club, New York City, NY
Blues Jam following the ‘Eire Apparent’ concert, possibly including some members of that band, with (at least) two unknown guitarists (one possibly EA’s Henry McCulloch?), Lester Chambers – harmonica; Unknown (possibly Chris Stewart) – bass; Unknown (possibly EA’s David Lutton, or Ray Lucas?) – drums & a very wrecked Jim Morrison - vocal<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
Jimi taped the show on his reel-to-reel Sony. Musicians may also include members of the house band ‘The McCoys’, (Rick Derringer has denied being there) or anyone, really (but definitely not Johnny Winter).<o:p></o:p>

bass guitar. Don’t have a bass, all right. Ray?...

4.< EVERYTHING'S GONNA BE ALRIGHT ( ‘Little’ Walter [Jacobs]) ><o:p></o:p>
[Jimi included this song in jam sessions three times this month 17th, 18th & 25th, this would appear to be an ironic tribute as Little Walter died of his injuries following a “street fight” a month previously on February 15. (Walter was to the harmonica what Jimi was to the electric guitar)]<o:p></o:p>

Ha that's great. Morrison was a genuine madman. I wonder what that jam would have sounded like had they been a little more sober (though Jimi was more together then Morrison that night). It's crazy how stuff like that used to happen in the 60's all the time. All these legends just walking into speakeasys one night and having spontaneous jams. No egos, no bull, just music. Nowadays when legends come to play together its all so pre-planned and put on award shows. Not as cool as it used to be

I was lucky enough to play with a keyboardist back in the '80's in Gainesville FL named Robert Peterson, who was the keyboardist in the McCoys when they were the house band at the Scene Club. (Check out his work and songwriting on the McCoys 'Infinite McCoys' and 'Human Ball' albums.) He had many tales of Jimi, BB King, Jeff Beck, the Animals etc. coming in to play with the band and partake in the after-hours "activities". He used to say some of the most exciting stuff those guys ever played came at the club when it was just a few friends and the pressure was off to be a "star". God, to go back to the days and be a fly on the wall there!

I would have loved to hear Jimi play with Allan Holdsworth or Eric Johnson, or a 3-way jam with Buddy Guy and Clapton. I just think those guys would all have really pushed Jimi out to the edge. It still amazes me what impact the guy had over what was basically a four-year career. No one even comes close.

Thanks for the info. Probably the ATM, can't remember exactly. Unfortunate that it's so badly mixed in bias of Jimi, we can't really hear how the other guitarist/s related to Jimi. Some of the lyrics, chat etc required isolation and much volume lift etc.

A jam with interstellar space era coltrane would've been insane. they are actually pretty similar, in terms of what they were trying to do with their instrument

Says who? I don't recall hearing this before.

When the Scene Club recordings first found their way into the shops (apart from the bootleg "Sky High") as the album "Woke Up This Morning And Found Myself Dead" (Red Lighning 1980), Miles is credited as drummer on side 2 ("Morrison's Lament" to "Sunshine Of Your Love". Note however that the sleeve also names Johnny Winter as a participant (this was of course later proved to be incorrect).

... Also, albeit in probably a different direction, it would have been interesting if the H.E.L.P. (Hendrix, Emerson, Lake & Palmer) thing had happened...My understanding (from past Emerson/Lake interviews) is that Mitch met with Keith and Greg in England when these two were in the initial stages of selecting/deciding on a drummer prior to Palmer being considered (around the Jan-Feb 1970 time frame). The encounter with Mitch involved an idea to include Hendrix in the mix. This would have had the acronym as being HELM. According to Greg, Mitch showed up with one (or was it two?) surly-looking bodyguard types that did not sit well with him. If anyone has info regarding a later encounter, after ELP had formed regarding an inclusion of Hendrix, hence HELP, I would be most interested. Either situation would have made a most interesting collaboration nonetheless.

I spend more thought wishing that among those Jimi DID jam with, he'd picked better songs to explore. And that he'd let his collaborators play songs from their own repertoires.I wish he'd done "Highway 61 Revisited" with Johnny Winter. I wish he'd done "Sunshine of Your Love" with Jack Bruce. I wish he'd done "Dear Mr Fantasy" with Traffic. I wish he'd done "For What It's Worth" with Stills. I wish he'd done "Signed DC" with Arthur Lee. Its still hard for me to believe that he DIDN'T play any of those songs with those guys. But at least he DID do "Mockingbird" with Dusty Springfield! LOL!

Yeah, well personally, i have no idea what's true and what's not, on this particular matter. Here's what i was able to find on wikipedia:

At least, there's a quote from Greg Lake on the matter.

It appears true to me that a Hendrix/Emerson & Lake connection existed. And judging from our info that a HELM or HELP collaboration could have been a possibility. However, as fate would have it ...

Hendrix and Curtis Mayfield would gell well i think... Coltrane and Davis, maybe Thelonius monk? I think Miles and Jim would have made it happen eventually, it would have been unique and stronger than the John Lee Hooker - Davis combo. Grover Washington Jr. forsure!.... and Wes Montgomerey.

Now that would be very interesting. Someone should get in touch with Mick Cox;-) Would be great to get a mix that didn't have the other guitarists turned down to almost inaudible, thereby ruining the dynamics of what was going down in this "drunken" (drugged;-)? but very interesting "jam" would be nice to knoww who played on it too, apart from Lester Chambers & Morrison? (my suspicion is the members of Eire Apprent after whose gig it happened;-). Jimi is completely controlling and directing it, including Jimbo's pornographic display. Apparently, judging by the feminine shouts of protest, not appreciated by several women there;-), surely one reason why he kept this embarrassing display by his main rival at the time;-) But of course another probable reason for him keeping it was his try outs for various songs during it:

1st live recording of Bleeding Heart (Elmore James)<?xml:namespace prefix = o /><o:p></o:p><?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
1st live recording of Sunshine Of Your Love ((John) "Jack" Bruce, Pete Brown & Eric Clapton)
1st live recording of Outside Woman Blues (as the Cream version, but by "Blind" Joe (aka Willie) "Reynolds" (real name Sheppard;-)? - he reportedly lost (most of) his sight due to a bullet injury, he apparently was more or less on the run hence his various names. One of the rarest of all surviving "Blues" 78's;-)
1st live recording of Tomorrow Never Knows (Lennon & McCartney) <o:p></o:p>
1st live recording of Everything's Gonna Be Alright ((Marion) "Little" Walter (Jacobs))<o:p></o:p>
1st recording of What A Shame (Jagger & Richards)
Only recording of Tail Dragger (Willie Dixon - for Howlin' Wolf)<o:p></o:p>
Only recording of Five To One (The Doors)<o:p></o:p>
Only quote of Crossroads (Robert Johnson)

First live recording of a version of his Getting My Heart Back Together Again, mistitled by the bootlegger/s as "I'm Gonna Leave This Town" but he/they wouldn't know any better anyway at that time - no need for us to continue with his mistake though? (just a few lines - ie still working on it):

But here we have it again, Mick Cox wasn't in Eire Apparent and probably not in New York in March 1968...though it's always possible Jimi gave him the tape in late 1968, just like he gave him his Gibson.

Most likely it's not a multi-track tape, just a quick dub with Jimi's cassette deck hooked up to the club's mixing board, so sadly we wont
be able to get any remixes. Also find it frustrating with the mix...Jimi did favor his guitar on his "personal" mixes; witness also the Cafe Au Go Go tape - no vocals, guitar way up in the mix.

That's what I'm beginning to question, according to Cox he was taken straight to the Record Plant and that he was also (later) at Red Rocks on 1st sept? A very memorable 'Experience' because he says it was the first time he took acid, describing the early morning sun coming up over the red rocks ('First Rays Of The New Rising Sun';-). But then I didn't say he was playing at this jam only that they, members of Eire Apparent at that time, quite likely played.

Is that your only interest in my analysis?

No, no it's a nice analysis :). Also find this show very interesting. To be pedantic it's his 2nd recorded Bleeding Heart if we count the Curtis Knight version.
What A Shame, that's quite an obscure song, can't remember the A-side to this Stones single? Ah, Heart of Stone.

For a moment I thought the most audible non-Jimi guitarist sounded like Rick Derringer, but if that's the case he'd probably not want to admit it.

I heartily disagree! Without any real evidence, yes. Some of those recordings seem to have "natural" audience noises. Damn, someone must know the real story of those tapes, but isn't speaking because of legal BS.

Speaking of CK, Niko of earlyhendrix.com recently unearthed this tidbit:

"Welcome Home


The original RSVP single label gives composer credit for "Welcome Home" solely to Curtis Knight, but the bmi.com database gives co-credit to Dick Glass. Who actually wrote this track is open to discussion, the track is musically a practically direct copy of a song called "You Messed up a Good Thing".

"You Messed up a Good Thing" was composed by Oliver Sain, the original recording by Fontella Bass and Bobby McClure was released in January 1965 on Checker 1097 coupled with "Baby What You Want Me to Do" (the same Jimmy Reed song that the Squires played live). The 45 was advertised in the 23 January 1965 issue of Billboard and reviewed in the "Singles Reviews" -section in the category "Rhythm & Blues Spotlights". The exact recording date of the Curtis Knight version is unknown but the RSVP single "How Would You Feel" (with "Welcome Home" on the b-side) was released in April 1966, circa 15 months later.

Listen to "You Messed up a Good Thing" on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LbYhsoOnmBA)."

For sure in the UK, at least, Marc was seen as being in the same "spirit" as Jimi, but not really musically quite on his plane, it would have been fun though, and tantalisingly possible as they had common musical near brushes/aquaintances/lovers from RSG 1966 onwards, although they never appear to have actually met:-)

Exactly "seem to have" I suggest you listen more closely. They all have no more than a couple of voices, mostly the band shouting insults at each other and for the rest just a couple of guys and women squabbling. All the intros are very obviously dubbed.

A great "band" (all Jimi + "whoever") playing (singing ~ 50% Jimi (no evidence of an intrumental contribution by Curtis on anything) + several instrumentals with obviously no Curtis) great tunes (basically/obviously Jimi recording his influences/faves at this time. With, possibly Lonnie & on his James Brown songs, and, okay, Curtis on a couple of crap choice ballads only), unlikely response a couple band members, or four/five max people only, no background sound of audience hubbub, or any response at all. This band played the top nightspots in NY at this time, Ondines & the Cheetah and were appreciated by the Stones etc.! The intros are obviously dubbed on as well. They (Jimi) had accsess to free studio time at PPX. It's in your face!

Some of these tracks are continous on the ATM edition, i.e. no cut between tracks and with intros. On most of the lp's the intros are cut-and-pasted from other places on the tape, but not "dubbed on" . I dunno, there's no way you can prove most of tracks aren't live (only 4 have no audience noise at all), so it's in yo face too! ;)

As an aside, Curtis dedicates a couple of songs to "you baby, Carol", surely Carol Shiroky...Jimi stole her in May, so those songs at least pre-date May 1966.

In her autobiography Janis Ian writes that she jammed extensively with Jimi. Usually she played keys - as I recall it was just the two of them and the jams would last for hours.

As for fantasy jams - how about an acoustic jam with Jimi and Jose Feliciano on acoustic guitars?

Actually my fantasy revolves around the people Jimi DID jam with and wishing they'd played better songs than they did. For instance, Jimi and Johnny Winter doing "Highway 61 Revisited." Or Jimi and John McLaughlin doing "Marbles" or "Don't Let the Dragon Eat your Mother". Or Jimi and Morrison doing "Break on Through". Or Jimi and Jack Bruce doing "Sunshine of Your Love". Too many of Jimi's colloborative jams seem like wasted opportunities.

If you had bothered to listen, you'll note there are a number of real transitions between tracks. Not saying all tracks are a continuos performance, that's your claim.

Grateful Dead or just jams with the rhythm section of GD (Phil, Billy and Mickey)
Duane Allman or ABB proper
Santana
Cream (this actually happened but no known recordings thumbdown1jerk1)
HELM might just have been ultra cool
Les Paul
Widespread Panic
Mountain or maybe just with Felix Papillardi
A more formal jam with the Doors as opposed to the Drunken revelry at the Scene Club with Jim Morrison that we have
More jams with Steve Winwood or perhaps the rumored band with Mitch, Winwood and Casady
Quicksilver Messenger Service
More jams with horn sections

Feels like tons of other possibilities but thats all I can think of off the top of my head.

I cannot call him the greatest and I love Jaco but also Stanley Clarke, Alfonso Johnson,James Jamerson all of them are unique.Weather Report would rehearse at Joe Zawinul's house which was about 1/4 mile from where I lived.I went to High school with Joe Zawinul's son Anthony.

Just imagine Jimmy & Billy Cobham on an Album like "Spectrum" (On which the incredible Tommy Bolin tears it up)
And as we're talking about Tommy Bolin,that would have been a great combination,two such inventive players !!!

As we've entered the imaginary stratosphere allready,how about this one :
Jimi taking a stab on "Smoke On The Water" I'm sure he'd let it rip (Blackmore eat your heart out LOL )

Aah well,so much possibillities,
Would have loved to hear some full orchestration versions of for instance some ballads under Jimi's supervision,
or "Burning Of The Midnight Lamp" with a big choir !?!?

Well fantasy,what would we do without it..............

I would have no wish to hear Jimi with chops-players. That's not what Jimi was about IMO.
He was a musical messenger, not a wanker like most guitar players.
Some far-out collaboration with Sun Ra, Miles Davis or Roland Kirk would have been cool.
And why not a soulful re-union with the amazing Isley Bros!

Yes the Isley's and Jimi would definitely been funky! Ernie Isley tried to carry the flame. I still believe Jimi would have gone towards a Jazz fusion angle. Miles was trying to get it started at the time Jimi died. For example I love the jam with Jimi, Richie Havens and Eric Oxendine!

the Jimi/Taj Mahal jam remains uncirculated - if Janie's got it, I wonder if we'll ever hear it?
I do not know if it has been seen before but a friend posted an amazing link on her Facebook page today ! Someone gaved on YouTube the legendary jam between Jim & Taj that I never heard before !

http://youtu.be/MJtuKa2X1vU
http://youtu.be/USHsNaK7vy0
http://youtu.be/0qSf1poVRAo

It said it was from Jimi's apartment in NY on January 21st, 1970 but we all know it's from Beverly Rodeo Hyatt House beginning of June 1969 few days before Newport.

I immediately informed Taj Mahal as I promote his albums in France for years. I do wait his comments !

The funny thing is that it has been posted on YouTube on November 22nd, 2011 by 3 different pseudos : Sunvyan, Savutichobe and FMeiLove from Botswana ! I suppose it may be the same person anyway :-)

Maybe no one talked about Taj Mahal 'cos (maybe) they knew it was not Taj playing !!

Here is Taj answer !

"Not even close Yazid!

I always played a National Steel Guitar!


The second guitar is electric and definitely not me!


They keep trying and they keep on missing!!


Taj"

Another french specialist (Régis "Ayler" Canselier) said two names were given for this recording : Taj Mahal and Jim McCarty. Well, for sure, it's definitely not Taj !!

I hope we'll hear the real jam one day !

Its Jim Mc Carthy, like we've known for 99.000 an one half year.

The 'real' Taj Mahal jam is on one of the Black Gold tapes. Which we'll probably never hear btw.

I do not think this is the Taj Mahal. Also I remember that the book “Scuse me while i kiss the sky – the life of Jimi Hendrix (D. Henderson) or Jimi Hendrix. Electric Gypsy (H. Shapiro – C. Glebbeek) said that the jam with Taj Mahal was recorded at Topanga Canyon outdoors with the singing of crickets in the background .

I would like to have heard him play with Coltrane circa "A Love Supreme" or "Impressions" era or Parliament his version of "Super Stupid" would kick ass.

For me its not a matter of who else he might have jammed with. He already did plenty of jamming with notables. My regret is that he did not choose better material for those jams! He jams with Jack Bruce and doesn't play "Sunshine of Your Love"? He jams with Johnny Winter and doesn't play "Highway 61"? He jams with Stevie Winwood and doesn't play "Dear Mr. Fantasy"? He jams with Steven Stills and doesn't play "For What it's Worth"? The list of missed opportunities goes on and on.

Those jams were for coming up with new material and stretching out musically...wouldn't it have been a bit regressive to play the "hits" of the participants?
Also, consider that all kinds of drugs and drink, groupies and other distracting elements were involved in most of those jams....

The free-flowing river of creativity that is the essence of jamming. Back in the day, jamming was very revered. The amazing thing for me is that they were that creative and that inspirational all at once. I mean, really? You just thought all that shit up off the top of your head!?

The rumored jam with Zappa that the Zappa estate supposedly owns is something I would love to hear. This is one collaboration that actually happened that very few have heard.

Is there any more tapes with Love? The book on arthur lee did mention Jimi/love jams & tape rolling

I'll go dig out the book ermmm

Edit: Just flicked through the book it does mention Jimi jamming with Love at Arthurs house but nothing about tape rolling however Arthur said he was made aware in the early 90s that film was taken during the Hendrix/Love Olympic session hmmm interesting, i dunno I'm sure i read somewhere that jams between the pair may have been recorded

Did he ever Jam with the woodstock era Santana line-up? Without carlos even better hahapersonally, I believe Santana had an influence on Hendrix. And not just via an expanded line-up, I can hear Carlos' influence in some Hendrix material. However, it is well publicized that Hendrix was an enormous influence on Carlos. How many guitar-slingers out there wear Hendrix t-shirts while performing?

It would have been interesting to hear Jimi jam with the Jefferson Airplane on their version of "Fat Angel" or a collaboration with Randy California and the original lineup of Spirit.

I wish he would have recorded with Grover Washington Jr. It appears Jimi was headed that direction in the 1970's. I think they would have crossed paths and would have been great together since there's much guitar work in Grover's music.

In some interview, can't remember which, Jimi talks about playing Mrs. Miller records slowed down and backwards. I think if Jimi had lived to the hip-hop era, we might have heard him DJ'ing his Mrs. Miller collection.

I'd like to have heard what Hendrix could have contributed to the band Morphine. Not in your face Hendrix frontman ripping, the ace ensemble Hendrix. Morphine was a trio based on some killing 2 string slide bass riffs, horns, drums. Moody and quirky with some great hooks and room for "sounds" along with straight playing. That scenario intrigues me much more than Hendrix and an endless list of guitar greats.
