Many books about Hendrix concentrate on showmanship and rock-and-roll excess, but Keith Shadwick's "Jimi Hendrix: Musician" brings to Hendrix's musical legacy as a guitarist, singer, and composer a depth of analysis missing from other accounts of his career, placing Hendrix's work in the broadest possible musical context, encompassing rock, pop, soul, funk, jazz, blues, fusion, and a range of classical disciplines. The book was first published in 2003; sadly, Shadwick died from cancer in 2008 at the age of 57. This new edition in a new format is published as a tribute to Shadwick, who was described in his obituary in the UK newspaper. The Independent as an authority on classical music who also wrote in-depth biographies of Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix. He was a jazzer who rocked and championed Gorecki.
