Oreo Blue in conjunction with BC Promotions and Doug Haase is proud to announce the release of "The Oreo Blue Experience / A Tribute to Jimi Hendrix" in May 2003. The "Oreo Blue Experience" is a live double disc package that includes a full length DVD concert movie with all the extras, plus an audio CD as well! This project is officially licensed by The Experience Hendrix LLC and $1 from each unit sold will be donated to VH1''s Save the Music Foundation in Jimi''s honor. The concert includes such classics as "Purple Haze, Voodoo Child (Slight Return), Hey Joe and Little Wing" along with some more obscure songs like "Who Knows and Them Changes" from the Band of Gypsies album. An original solo instrumental tribute by Oreo Blue guitarist Gary Hutchison, "US" is included along with a never before covered Hendrix song "Stratto-Strut". This funk instrumental song was featured on the Jimi Hendrix 2000 release Morning Symphony Ideas. The DVD concert has all the visual qualities of a full blown Rock Concert with world class production. Also, all who attended and signed the guest book are listed as co-producers in the movie credits.
tribute: something given or contributed voluntarily as due or deserved; especially : a gift or service showing respect, gratitude, or affection; something that indicates the worth or virtue of the one in question.
"That Jimi Hendrix is due respect, gratitude, or affection comes as no surprise. Hendrix reinvented the electric guitar as we know it today, and there is scarcely a player who plugs a Fender Strat into a Marshall amp that doesn''t owe the master a debt. To pay a musical tribute to the man, or in this case, to play a tribute to him, is a tall order- like writing a sonnet for Shakespeare. So when the veteran R&B band Oreo Blue decided to become the Oreo Blue Experience Tribute To Jimi, they approached the project with a profound appreciation for both the technical skill and the spirit of the late, great Hendrix. The bands'' desire to evoke the freedom and electricity of a Jimi Hendrix performance is attained by a rare combination of musical talent and beyond-the-boundaries risk-taking. The result is not mimicry or a paint-by-numbers greatest hits set, but a highly creative, emotional performance that embraces the familiar and the obscure, the subtlety and the bombast of The Experience."
