Jimi Hendrix JOTA tribute. Sunday 11/27 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM

From Mr. Edison of Jazz On The Air.

Jimi Hendrix would have been 74 today and while he would have never considered himself a jazz player there's a slew of jazz folk who cite him as a seminal influence. A bunch of them have even done tributes to the man. Most of these are mediocre at best but Mr. Edison will take some time on this week's Jazz On The Air to play some of the better ones along with new releases and hard to find gems.

Sunday 11/27 4-7 p.m. EDT
