Had Jimi Hendrix lived long enough to hear Grandmaster Flash, Public Enemy or Ice-T, he might have sounded something like unconventional singer/rapper Jean-Paul Bourelly. Bourelly’s critics have denounced him as a mere Hendrix clone, but in truth, there are too many things that set them apart. First, Bourelly is an obvious lover of hip-hop culture, and second, Bourelly is greatly enamored of funk and isn’t as metallic as Hendrix. This interesting collection of live and studio material (some of which has a strong sociopolitical bent) shows that Bourelly is, in fact, his own man. But although not a clone, Bourelly could be a bit less obsessive in his devotion to the great rocker. He does have potential, and is someone to keep an eye on.
