AWESOME LIVE SET FROM THE SWEDISH BLUES/ROCK HEAVY GUITAR LEGEND
AND LEADER OF SKY HIGH, CLAS YNGSTROM, PAYING MUSICAL TRIBUTE
TO THE MAN (HENDRIX). RECORDED LIVE IN STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN (2003).
Awesome live disc from Swedish blues/rock heavy guitar legend & leader of Sky High paying "musical tribute" to THE MAN (HENDRIX). Clas Yngstrom is without a doubt one of the best Hendrix-inspired heavy axerippers in the world and on "Tribute to Hendrix" he digs deep and waves his Hendrix Freak Flag High. If you dig Jimi's music this one's definitely for you. Recorded Live in Stockholm, Sweden (2003). Re-issue of this long out of print, essential, classic heavy guitar disc that delivers serious six string mojo. Make sure to tune in if you missed the boat the first time around and rock guitar heavy with the amazing Clas Yngstrom @ bad-ass, timeless Hendrix riffage.
"Tribute To Hendrix", the latest disc for Swedish blues/rock heavy guitar legend CLAS YNGSTROM (founder & leader of SKY HIGH), is an awesome "musical tribute" to the father of heavy guitar, JIMI HENDRIX. Recorded live in Stockholm, Sweden in March - 2003, "Tribute To Hendrix" features 10 trax of mind-bending, intense, breath taking, tremendously organic, retro-70's bluesy heavy guitar power trio riffage from one of the best "hendrixy" guitarists in the world. Recorded exclusively for GROOVEYARD RECORDS, a new label dedicated to outstanding TOTAL GUITAR from around the globe.
On "Tribute To Hendrix", CLAS "SKY HIGH" YNGSTROM digs deep into the "outskirts of infinity" and grooves heavily through an awesome set of classic killer HENDRIX jams with his outstanding trio, complete with a super-sonic way-kool "BAND OF GYPSIES" vibe. The CLAS YNGSTROM TRIO effortlessly "rip & tear" through all the familiar HENDRIX musical territory with CLAS YNGSTROM laying down the heavy guitar law and legitimately paying tribute to "THE MAN" (HENDRIX). Clas Yngstrom gets down hard on every track throughout the "Tribute To Hendrix" disc and his guitar playing is pure rock genius. He reaches levels on the guitar that most guitarists could never attain in a lifetime of playing.
The CLAS YNGSTROM TRIO: "tribute to hendrix" disc is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to fans of JIMI HENDRIX and all his awesome musical sonic splendor, and to fans of SKY HIGH, ROBIN TROWER, FRANK MARINO, ERIC GALES, RANDY HANSEN, ERIC JOHNSON, MICHAEL LANDAU, etc. including fans of any killer top-shelf "over- the-top" hendrixy heavy guitar music that surrounds us.
"Tribute To Hendrix" is phat and sassy, featuring a mountain of mind-blowing Hendrixy improvisational fury. "Tribute To Hendrix" is a timeless, profound piece of heavy guitar history from one of the best Hendrix-inspired guitarists in the world or, in this case, the "third stone from the sun." Somewhere beyond the "outskirts of infinity" JIMI is smiling. Long live the musical spirit of JIMI HENDRIX.
