In the mid seventies, He went back to a song from the late sixties, one that had been introduced in the realm of not just rock but really hard rocking stuff. The albums that were put out by the flashy guitarists and vibrant personality. Jimi Hendrix, a guy that you wouldn't think would boil down easily to jazz, but there was a kind of a shuffle quality to his song up from the skies. And as it turns out, if Hendrix had lived, he might have pulled more into that jazz direction. I think certain musicians have known that instinctively. Another was Gil Evans, who certainly could frame A revolutionary artist like say, Miles Davis. In a very elegant way. Let's hear both of those men and their approach to Jimi Hendrix songs as we acknowledge the 20th century legends 50th anniversary of passing just this past week. Kenny Rankin's things up from the sky. I just wanna talk to you. I won't do you? No. I just wanna know aboutyour different lives on this hill. People follow. Heard some of you got your family.

"Definitely steeped in emotion. Those songs from painted in memory on the God, give me strength is just emotionally solid and musically performance of -ly solid. And then the lyrics are just very well chosen. There's no holes in that is really that's good of you. I mean, that's the very first Burton I wrote, and we were just finding our way to work together. And you know, one of the things for which gets very little credit in our collaboration. Because people always assume that he wrote all the music, and I roll the words is that whether or not it was a huge presumption on my part to suggest music to Burbank. Right. You gotta give him credit that after everything he'd written. He was curious to see what happened when he did right with another composer because he'd never really done that before. And I think that's pretty amazing because I knew couldn't be held evid. I'm not technically good enough to be held. I mean, he's like more light one of the Broadway Hollywood era kind of songwriters like Lorenzo's or an IRA Gershwin. I mean, his words all have. The right. Sounds and the right rhythm and minor a little bit more Radic. And sometimes I'll bend the music to the words. But wouldn't let me do that. So it was actually exacting for me to write the words, particularly the ones that he had the dominant part of the composition because he wouldn't let me change one single note in the music, even if I had a good line sent I'd say this line is. But that's not on the music. You know, you're adding another bit a rhythm there nobody'll notice. Yeah. They will. Of course. He's right. You know, because that's how June sticks in your head because it's the shape he said it's going to be. So those little details. Like what I learned from the experience of working with him all on painted from memory of really most of them are huge in range some of the right to the edge of where I can physically sing. So not everybody likes that sound when I get up this I accept that. But tell you take a listen to all the cover versions of God, give me sheriff. And tell me anybody that can do it better. Because actually there was some technically speaking more capable singers over tempted to. Sing that song had no more ease that less chorus where you go. Really this really only one way to get there. Unless you say the only person I could have imagined singing that song effortlessly would have into the Vandross. He wasn't around to sing it, you know. And that's the only voice I could hear my head that could have possibly gone there without any strain. But that's it when you write on sometimes have a singer's voice in your head. But the thing that comes out is the tatty thing that you can do, you know, and it's got rough edges, but the emotion of is what matters really it's not the technical expertise. It just worked out that when we were writing these particular songs the first group of songs were written. So with a sense of discovery, we were just writing and the final shape of them was just because Burton I were adding to each other's ideas. And the songs were developing the scale quite a lot of them along as well. A lot of songs that are over the form. And at mar the we're not trying to write two and a half three minute. Pop records. Don't look MSA perfect is on. But you say the space, but also brevity is another thing. Because it was written originally to be positive theatrical story. So all of the story can be told into and a half minutes. There was no bridge it needed to go to it already has a bridge..
