Tommy and Jerry Play Jimi

Tommy Emmanuel’s latest album, Accomplice One, contains some stunning playing – which is only  what you’d expect – but even given Tommy’s eclectic tastes nothing prepares you for one of the standout tracks – a jammed version of Purple Haze (Jimi Hendrix) with Dobro master Jerry Douglas.

Tommy says: ‘I tried to think of a way of annoying bluegrass purists and my idea was to get Jerry Douglas to play Purple Haze with me! This recording is one take and totally spontaneous. I’m still not sure if I followed him or if he followed me, but we both ended up in the same place – and then laughed about it. Jerry, to me, is a genius and has a beautiful attitude towards making music and I’m very grateful to have him as a friend.’

Accomplice One released by Players Club.
