Live Photos: Hendrix in Harlem—A Tribute to Jimi from The Apollo Theater

To celebrate what would’ve been Jimi Hendrix’s 74th birthday, a diverse group of musicians gathered to interpret his catalog at The Apollo Theater on November 26. Fishbone led the way and acted as house band, while frontman Angelo Moore hosted the evening. A non-stop parade of talent paid tribute, including original flower-child Ernie Isley, poet and alternative hip-hop artist Saul Williams and powerhouse vocalists Nona Hendryx and Liv Warfield.

But all in attendance would agree that the show-stopper here was 12-year-old Brandon “Taz” Niederauer. This little dude melted faces all night with outrageous chops and a fully-developed monster stage-presence. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for Taz.

Song Highlights
Nona Hendryx, “If 6 Was 9”
Saul Williams, “In From The Storm”
