Gypsys Reloaded Live in Amsterdam (Jpgotmangos)
Melvin Gibbs, bass and Calvin Weston, drums
Recorded live at Bimhuis Amsterdam
Recorded during the second European tour in 2008.
Bourelly's Hendrix tributes are some of the most inspirational on record.
He has the ability to speak in the Hendrix language yet with his own original vision, take it some where else. This exciting trio performs the track we know so well never faltering into nostalgia but re-energizing tunes as if in progressive motion,
For any collector of Bourelly's work or Hendrix aficionados, its is a must have.
The groups drummer Cindy Blackman was replaced by Calvin Weston who fills the chair quite adequately. Melvin Gibbs delivers the bottom heavy goods on bass as the three update and remind us of the possibilities that still are rip to be tapped into from the historic group Band of Gypsys.
