    St Paul Despatch (04 May) ‘Jimi Hendrix sheds excess showiness, puts focus on guitar’ review by Marshall Fine: “It’s as if lead guitarists have fallen out of vogue. Suddenly everyone is into horns; it’s as if the days of the guitar solo are numbered. Jimi Hendrix, sans horns, brought all the focus back to the guitar Sunday night during his concert at the St. Paul Auditorium. Hendrix was leaner and meaner than when he played here in November 1968 (at the Minneapolis Auditorium). The most notable improvement is the cut-away of excess flash that used to be a standard in his act. More appreciable now is Hendrix’s amazing talent that has been lurking beneath the garish showiness since he made his American debut at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967. Hendrix started off Sunday with a fast, light version of “Let Me Stand Next to Your Fire,” one of the songs from his first album. His short solo showed right away that he is calmer, cleaner and more imaginative than he was over a year ago. There was fluidity in his guitar work that he’s never shown before. All Hendrix’s concentration was on his playing and very little of his effort was devoted to the backbends and gymnastics that were once his trademarks. He also showed a foxy sexuality in his singing and in his little introductions to each song. His movements were as graceful and as lustful as his playing. He displayed a controlled abandon in the faster numbers which come closer to rhythm and blues than anything else. He’s currently being backed by Mitch Mitchell, his drummer from the original Jimi Hendrix Experience, and by bassist Billy Cox, who was with him in a short-lived group called A Band of Gypsys. Both were competent and provided a good background but the show belonged to Hendrix. Preceding Hendrix were two groups, Savage Grace and Oz. Savage Grace had an excellent pianist and good vocal arrangements. Their sound was solid but they had little showmanship and ended up being fairly boring. Oz, on the other hand, started slowly, then picked up speed with two or three country-rock numbers which also featured some nice harmonies. They were good enough to make the audience want more, but the group quit while they were ahead.”
