La notte in cui inventarono il rock | The Night They Invented Rock

La notte in cui inventarono il rock | The Night They Invented Rock

James Marshall “Jimi” Hendrix (Seattle, 27 November 1942 – London, 18 September 1970) is considered the greatest guitarist of all time, and the impetus behind a major revolution in rock music.

During his brief but intense artistic career, he invented a new way of playing the guitar. Volcanic, wild, and crackling with adrenaline, he broke with tradition and opened new frontiers of instrumental experimentation. His performance at the Monterey Festival in 1967 is a touchstone in the collective imagination: Jimi was still relatively unknown when, at the end of his set, he lit his guitar on fire to the astonishment of the crowd.That gesture, that moment, marked the beginning of a new era of rock and the birth of a new legend.The Night They Invented Rock ends there, at the birth of a legend, showing kids the communicative magic of music, and the power that dreams and passion have in driving one’s destiny.  The audio CD features a narration by Stefano Nosei and Flavia Guido, accompanied by the guitarsof Reno Brandoni and Andrea Maddalone.
