Eddie Kramer Discusses Jimi Hendrix's Legacy in TV Interview

(hennemusic) Legendary producer Eddie Kramer talks about the musical legacy of Jimi Hendrix in a new interview with NBC Nightly News.

Kramer co-produced the new release, "People, Hell & Angels," along with Experience Hendrix CEO Janie Hendrix and John McDermott. Kramer first met Hendrix at Olympic Studios in London in January 1967.

"From middle 1968 to the end of '69, Jimi's in the studio experimenting, rehearsing," says Kramer. "By the way, Jimi used the studio as his rehearsal space; very expensive, but thank goodness the tape was running all the time because we captured all these performances."

"He was developing a certain sound which is one of the reasons why we put this record together. It showed this transition from the Jimi Hendrix Experience into another realm," Kramer continued. "He was so adept at taking contemporary music, whether it was jazz, or rock or pop or RnB, and combining it into his own style." Watch the interview here.
