    Jimi Hendrix: American Masters Considered a pioneering electric guitarist, one of the most influential in the history of popular music, Jimi Hendrix only had four years of mainstream exposure and recognition, but his music and riveting stage presence left an enormous, enduring legacy. Tracing his roots from Seattle to international stardom, this is his definitive story, illustrated by interviews with Hendrix at venues such as the Miami Pop Festival and illuminated with commentary by Paul McCartney, Noel Redding, Billy Cox, Eddie Kramer and others. Poignant, protected footage from his final performance in Germany in September 1970, just 12 days before his tragic drug-related death at age 27, concludes the film. In what would have been his 70th year, the Hendrix estate has cooperated fully with this film, releasing closely held performance footage that has, literally, never been seen before as well as an extensive archive of photographs, drawings and family letters. duration 1:56:07   STEREO TV14
