These are good, honest efforts, in large part because Gil Evans and his musicians stay true to their language and background. That said, I don't think that Hendrix translates particularly well to this kind of approach. Gil Evans shined with music that was harmonically and melodically rich. Hendrix's must was extremely limited, harmonically. That is not meant as a put down, as Hendrix's musical contributions were more textural, rhythmic, and shaped by energy. Those parameters of music don't transfer well to other instrumental combinations and historically mindsets. Still, these interpretations were honest and respectful, but not particularly compelling, and don't hold up well over time.
Well said, Larry.
