On Bromberg Plays Hendrix, bassist Brian Bromberg doesn't utilize the electric guitar at all, but it's hard to tell. A tribute to one of the world's most inventive guitarists could only be honored by doing something completely different from what is expected. Bromberg manages this on both acoustic and electric piccolo bass. Whether covering sonic blasts like "Fire" and "Purple Haze" or the melancholia of "The Wind Cries Mary," Bromberg and drummer Vinnie Colaiuta make this a worthwhile endeavor that stands up to repeated listening.
