Various Artists: In From the Storm (1995)

VA in from the storm

By Scott Goldfine

Jimi Hendrix producer Eddie Kramer has gathered some the world’s greatest rock (Carlos Santana, Sting), jazz (Stanley Clarke), blues (Taj Mahal) and funk (Bootsy Collins) musicians as well as the London Metropolitan Orchestra for the tribute “In From the Storm: Music of Jimi Hendrix.”

The 12-song LP is more cohesive and ambitious than last year’s “Stone Free” tribute. Bootsy’s funked-up “Purple Haze” is a highlight.
