New Horizons

Amid the tumult of the summer of 1969, Jimi recognized that he still had a great deal of work to do. His dreams of building his own studio were slowly coming to fruition, but the construction was often slowed by lack of a direct money stream. Further, Jimi now needed to build a new band. He had Mitch waiting in the wings and Miles and Cox were ready to work with him on short notice—regardless of how his management felt about it. In addition, Jimi had been jamming with a percussionist named Geraldo “Jerry” Velez, who Jeffery did not like but who Jimi enjoyed due to the Latin flavor that Velez brought to the overall sound.1 In fact, Jimi was looking to make his new expanded band quite large—with two percussionists. The other was Juma Sultan who brought more of a traditional African approach in his drumming.2

On July 7, Jimi appeared on the Dick Cavett Show where he performed “Hear My Train A Comin’,” followed a few days later with an appearance on Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show. In the middle of the month, Jimi sent for his old friend guitarist Larry Lee. Although Jimi had been used to playing both rhythm and lead guitar parts, he had begun to feel that having a dedicated rhythm guitarist in the band would give him greater flexibility. Lee had just returned from Vietnam and was quickly immersed in Jimi’s new musical world. On July 23, Jimi and his new bandmates relocated to Traver Hallow Road, Shokan, New York, where they spent the next month working up new songs and trying to create a new musical core around Jimi.3 The move to New York and the Shokan location was part of the run-up to the Woodstock Music and Art Fair—An Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace and Music which Jimi had committed to playing.
