About the image
Jimi Hendrix smiles during a press conference in New York City on top of the Pan Am Building, in January, 1968.  Hendrix had just arrived in the US after a European tour and was on his way to perform at the Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco.  He and the Experience performed at the Fillmore East in May of that year. 

"
Jimi Hendrix was a kind, considerate man—a spiritual force whose music expanded our consciousness and set us free. Jimi often carried his own movie camera. I photographed him [here] at a press conference in 1968 at the Pan Am building in NYC where he decided to record the media recording him. Unfortunately. all those films have been lost.” -- Elliott Landy
