Prodigious funk-rock singer/songwriter/guitar-slinger Harts joins host Jeremy Dylan on the eve of his new EP “Breakthrough”, to talk about one of his biggest influences - the legendary Jimi Hendrix. They delve riff-by-riff into Hendrix’s last great album, 1970’s “Band of Gypsys”.
Why did Hendrix change his band and approach for this album? How does the live setting change the way Hendrix plays? How does Harts feel about how often he’s compared to Hendrix? Was one of the songs inspired by Sly and the Family Stone? Does the world need any more posthumus Hendrix albums?
Plus, Harts talks about capturing the feel of a band like Band of Gypsys when he’s playing all the parts on his own records himself.
