Chas Chandler: The man who discovered Jimi Hendrix

Jimi was discovered by the ex-Animal bassist, Bryan "Chas" Chandler in the Summer of '66. Chas was instrumental in getting Jimi to London, building the band (The Experience - Mitch Mitchell and Noel Redding) around him and getting him a record deal with Track Records.

Chas was also the sole genius behind the plan of taking Hendrix out of America, bringing him to the most swinging place - London, release a couple of 'smoking' albums (Are You Experience & Axis: Bold As Love) and then unleashing him back to the US - a brilliant strategy!

Read more about the man and visionary in this well chronicled article from the BBC.

Thanks for the original share +Oleg Moskalensky :)

His discovery of a young Jimi Hendrix in a New York coffee house would change the face of music. Twenty years on from Chas Chandler's death, those who knew him look back at his life.

Hendrix tocaba y cantaba blues igual q Janis antes d ser rockanroleros quizá chandler lo inicio en el rock pero ambos igual q Elvis eran bluesistas,Rolling Stones tocaban rithm &blues Brian Jones al llegar a América lo primero q hizo fue ir a chicago a conocer la cuna del blues howlin' wolf y muddy waters y bb king fueron su guía de una canción de muddy tomaron el nombre d las piedras rodantes te recomiendo "adiós bessie mae"con jimi (jumi le decía su padre)me gustan más como bluesistas en lo personal aunq buenos rockanroleros

Jimi Hendrix | The Cry of Love Tour | Honolulu, Hawaii

This was the final concert of the second North American leg. The date, August 1st, 1970 and the Honolulu International Center (Neal S. Blaisdell Center) was sold out. Billy Cox on bass, Mitch Mitchell on drums and the man on the guitar, Mr. Jimi Hendrix.

Here is a link to his set list from that night -

Here is a review of the concert:
Review by Wayne Harada for Billboard Magazine, August 29th 1970:

Jimi Hendrix
H.I.C. Arena, Honolulu

Call it drawing strength: Jimi Hendrix had a sell-out house of 8,400 in his third Island appearance in as many years. He displayed his audio-visual hurricane Experience Aug. 1 at the H.I.C. Arena.
It was a trip to Decibel City: a cacophony of electrical storms, coupled with a blizzard of frenzied artistry. It was loud and lethal for the senses, but the wizard of the whining guitar had warned his audience early in the program: “It’s going to be loud. It will get louder. It will get loudest.” He wasn’t kidding.
The audience of hip and young folk dug it. Hendrix appeared, looking like a Madam Butterfly in his Kimono-sleeved outfit with psychedelic oranges and greens, and his music was equally colorful: emphatic, trance-like, piercing, ranting, riveting.
There were the landmarks: “Foxy Lady,” “Purple Haze.” Plus some bonus ramblings, such as “Easy Rider.” The now-classic “Star-Spangled Banner” enabled Hendrix to indulge in theatrics, simulating machine-gun fire and bombs bursting in air.
Mitch Mitchell on drums and Billy Cox on bass augmented Hendrix’ consistent guitar manship and vocals.

Paramin, T&T's Breadbasket

This vibrant village is located on one of the highest points of western area of the Northern Range in Trinidad, Trinidad and Tobago. It also is part of the Maraval area where I currently live.

The soil in this region is extremely fertile and the most of the people, in the area, grow an assortment of fruits, herbs (most of our chives, culantro, thyme, and oregano are grown there), and vegetables. If you ever come to Trinidad, Paramin is a must place to visit and explore.

Gulgula(Banana/Fig Fritters)

Gulgula is a popular Indian sweet ball made of wheat flour, jaggery and fennel seeds or saunf. It is also known as meethi pokori in the country parts of India's Uttarakhand state.

When the Indians came to Trinidad and Tobago in 1845, they brought with them this delicious dessert which is now an integral part of our local cuisine. Today, we make this tasty fritter dessert with our varied types of bananas or fig, as it's referred to locally.

Fellow Trinidadian, +Taste of Trini​​​ does a great job showing us how to make this yummy dessert. After watching her video, it looks like I will have to whip up a delicious batch this weekend. :)

Trini Doubles

This amazingly delicious street food is unique to our twin island nation. Whenever you visit Trinidad and Tobago, place eating doubles at the top of your must do list.

Fellow Trinbagonian, Natasha does a brilliant job showing us how to make this tasty dish. If you enjoy good food, I strongly urge you to give her simple recipe a try.

Please note: In the video, Natasha mentions and uses the ingredient, bandhaniya. Bandhaniya is the Hindi name for culantro (also referred to locally as Chadon Beni which is the French name). If you can't get your hands on this aromatically potent ingredient, you can substitute it with its less potent cousin, cilantro. Enjoy! :)

Trini Style Fish Broth

Some call it Fish Tea, Fish Broff and/or Fish soup. Regardless of the name, this Trini style fish soup is simply to die for!
The fresh vegetables and aromatics coupled with the slices of either king fish, carite or shark make this soup a must try and a must eat.

Here is a link to fellow Trini, Martina J's video recipe:

Thanks to +Fred Williams for the original share.

Diversity at Google

Google is making great strides in ensuring that its work-force is diverse. It's accomplishing this by filling its campuses with talented people of color and women. In 2015, their hiring for Black, Hispanic, and female Googlers grew faster than their current demographic representation for each of those groups. And their Hispanic Googlers in technical roles increased from 2 to 3 percent from all over the world. Read more ...
