Hey Jimi

  • "Slowman's interpretation really catches the soul of Jimi Hendrix where it was somewhere between the sixties and the seventies! Hey Jimi – Listen and enjoy in your rock'n roll heaven!" Roger Skoog, nyaskivor.se
  • "It is clear that SLOWMAN is a dedicated musician, who gathered a few fellow musicians and recorded this high quality CD. He is quite familiar with Jimi's music as in the past he has done a lot of JIMI HENDRIX covers live on stage." Strutterzine, Points: 8.0 out of 10
  • "A solid tribute to the guitar king. – The interaction often works well, especially on tracks like ”Purple Haze”, ”Foxy Lady” and ”Voodoo Child”. Here you find force and heaviness. – Extra fun that the musicians were attracted by Hendrix's bluesier side." Gert-Ove Fridlund, Hallandsposten, SE
  • "They pull the songs a lot more towards rock and blues where they seem to thrive particularly well. Bonuses are Törngrens seductive vocals and especially his great expressive guitar playing. And a special mention to ”Electric Angel” – Very well done!" Ctrl Alt. Country e-zine, BE
  • "... the trio feels relaxed, unpretentious and keen on playing. These gentlemen make the whole thing their own. – You hear the pal Hendrix, one of the gang, a guy that just went out to buy smokes and will be back in a minute. Unusually unusual." Henry Lindén, Red Hot Rock Magazine, SE
  • "Ett riskabelt projekt som jag tycker är framgångsrikt. – Bra gjort!" Gerrit Vermeij, Muziekvenster, NL
  • "Med utmärkta insatser av fina musiker, bränner Slowman & Co av fräscha versioner av tio av Jimis bästa låtar – Hey Jimi är en vinnare från början till slut." MWE3.com, UK/US
  • "What they conjure you can’t describe, it has to be heard – Simply stunning – and it still sounds just like Slowman. And that goes for every track, even the first track, written by Slowman. Here he manages to make the track sound as if it had been written by a mature, older Hendrix." Dietrich Gastrock, Home of Rock, DE
  • "A total delight from beginning to end – and even challenging tracks like Voodoo Child come across in a new version, without denying the original (and not as clinical in approach as Stevie Ray Vaughan). Red House is if possible, even bluesier than the original" Dietrich Gastrock, Home of Rock, DE
  • "Little Wing lacks nothing to the famous original, nor to the no less famous version by Clapton/Derek & The Dominoes – but Slowmans sound is warmer, rougher and somehow more heartfelt." Dietrich Gastrock, Home of Rock, DE
  • "Here he proves just how strong these songs still are, some forty years after they first left the mind of Jimi Hendrix to end up on vinyl." Rootstime, BE
  • "Slowman and friends do competent versions in a more bluesy and rootsy way – It´s pretty hard to turn down solid versions of classics like 'Fire', 'Manic depression', 'Little wing', 'Foxy lady' and 'Voodoo child'." K. Roth, Melodic Net
