The legendary guitar player and songwriter Jimi Hendrix, is set to be featured in two notable films this February.

The first film is “Ronnie’s,” a chronicle about saxophonist Ronnie Scott, who is one of the best British jazz musicians, and his legendary London nightclub that is named after him. Ronnie’s features a number of previously unseen and unheard performances by other standouts, including Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis, Nina Simone, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, Chet Baker, and yes, Hendrix. Directed by Oliver Murray and set to release on Feb 11.

In the section where Hendrix is featured, he was sitting in with Eric Burdon and the band War at the club. The performance took place on September 16, 1970, and sadly, it was Hendrix’s final gig, two days before his death on September 18.

The second Hendrix-featured movie is a documentary called “Music, Money, Madness… Jimi Hendrix In Maui.” Directed by John McDermott, it documents Hendrix’s 1970 visit to Maui. This film is a Grammy-nominated work in 2020 that finally makes its long-awaited theatrical debut starting February 1 (see dates below). Abroad, the film will be seen in the Netherlands, Mexico, Spain and other countries.

The film’s press statement says the following:

“Jimi Hendrix is larger than life and his explosive concerts are meant to be experienced on the biggest screens possible,”

Said Evan Saxon, head of music strategy and international distribution at Abramorama, which is the company releasing the film.

“It’s where Jimi belongs. Abramorama is honored to continue our collaboration with Experience Hendrix, Sony Legacy and our cinema partners around the world to give Jimi Hendrix fans another opportunity to enjoy rock and roll history.”

“Directed by John McDermott and produced by Janie Hendrix, George Scott and McDermott, Music, Money, Madness… Jimi Hendrix In Maui incorporates never before released original footage and new interviews with firsthand participants and key players such as bassist Billy Cox, recording engineer Eddie Kramer, Warner Bros. executives, and several Rainbow Bridge cast members, as well as its director Chuck Wein.”

“Their fascinating account tells the definitive story about one of the most controversial independent films ever made.”
