Power of Soul: A Tribute to Jimi Hendrix

April 12, 2011

2011 re-release of 2004 hit tribute album ‘Power Of Soul: A Tribute To Jimi Hendrix’.

This star-studded musical tribute to Jimi Hendrix is highlighted by contributions by artists from rock, R&B, blues and funk. Each of these artists bears witness to Hendrix’s imprint on their own music. From the contemporary R&B stylings of Musiq to the deep country blues of John Lee Hooker, Jimi’s creative spirit-the pure inventive freedom he drew upon to originate these signature songs-stands undiminished.

This special project features new interpretations of Hendrix’s classics from a host a music’s biggest stars including Lenny Kravitz, Sting, Santana, Eric Clapton, John Lee Hooker, Stevie Ray Vaughan, George Clinton, Bootsy Collins, Earth Wind & Fire, and numerous others.

While Power Of Soul was created to pay homage to Jimi’s influence on popular music, another very important component of this project-wholly embraced by the album’s executive producers and participating artists-was the commitment to continue supporting a scholarship fund in Jimi Hendrix’s name at the United Negro College Fund.
