    Guitarist Nguyn L pays tribute to Jimi Hendrix by performing ten of the late rock innovator's songs on this 2002 CD. L plays in the tradition of Hendrix without directly copying him, being creative and stretching himself. The occasional vocals by drummer Terri Lyne Carrington, Ada Khann, and Corin Curschellas (which are sometimes spoken as much as sung) are unfortunately not as interesting and are mostly distracting. Bassist Michel Alibo is excellent during his solos and L shows originality in his improvisations, but the music overall is more heartfelt than essential, particularly since Hendrix's own records are easily available. ~ Scott Yanow
