The Experience Hendrix Tour, which rolled into the Hammerstein Ballroom on Tuesday, borrows its name from the Jimi Hendrix Experience, and from that band’s epochal first album, “Are You Experienced.”
….Among the evening’s more faithful evocations were a subdued “Little Wing,” featuring David Hidalgo and Cesar Rosas of Los Lobos, and a sprawling “Voodoo Child (Slight Return),” featuring the raucous blues guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd. Even better along these lines, though, was Jonny Lang, working in tandem with Aerosmith’s Brad Whitford on a powerhouse version of “Fire.” Though hardly the most dazzling guitarist on the bill, Mr. Lang was among the better singers, and he threw himself headlong into the songs: he got equally strong results out of “Spanish Castle Magic” and “The Wind Cries Mary.”
….Experience Hendrix continues… at the Fox Theater in Detroit on Saturday.
