B.B. King, Jimi Hendrix, Paul Butterfield and Others Jam at Generation Club, NYC 1968

Jimi Hendrix was at the top of this flight in blues progression and it was in 1968 that he was soaking in the New York jam scene unlike any other artist and on the evening of April 15, 1968, Hendrix took to the stage with B.B. King. Paul Butterfield, Elvin Bishop, Al Kooper and many others for one of the world’s greatest blues jams ever captured in a small club setting. To celebrate B.B. King’s passing into the next journey, I welcome you all to enjoy this jam recording from the Generation Club, New York City, April 15, 1968. A Stereo Soundboard Recording.

  1. Thank you very much for the background and the music. This remarkable performance came just 11 days after the assassination of Dr. King. The sadness is there, from B.B. King’s voice in the intro to the play of everyone of the blues masters.
