Recording Electric Lady Big Band - 50 Years of Hendrix’s Masterpiece

A 16-piece ensemble featuring an all-star cast of leading jazz improvisors tackle Jimi Hendrix’s 1968 album Electric Ladyland.

Following on from two great nights at Ronnie Scotts and Bristol Jazz Festival in the spring, Denny Ilett's Electric Lady Big Band will be recording in the studio. The whole of Hendrix's classic album is played in sequence and features brand new arrangements by artistic director/guitarist Denny Ilett, inspired by the legendary Gil Evan’s re-workings of Hendrix in the 1970’s.
