Jimi Hendrix playing at an Atlantic Records release party

with Wilson Pickett,

King Curtis, Percy Sledge,

Cornell Dupree and

Esther Phillips at the Prelude Club in Harlem on May 5, 1966.

Before forming his own band Jimi worked with various R&B acts such as the Isley Brothers, King Curtis and Ike and Tina Turner. Tina Turner has denied that Jimi was in her band; Ike Turner claimed Jimi was in his band and that he owned a guitar played by Jimi. Jimi confirmed that he did play with Ike and Tina Turner in a few interviews including one with

Gus Gossert at the Winterland Arena in 1968 when he was asked if he started in San Francisco. 

Jimi: “No, I started all over the place… I came out here before. Yeah. I played here at the Fillmore with Ike and Tina and Little Richard about 4 or 5 years ago”

Also, the liner notes of the 1967 UK Track Records LP pressing of “Are You Experienced” mentioned that Jimi played with Ike

and Tina “on the west coast”.

Ike & Tina Turner in Ghana (1971)  

On March 6, 1971 some of the biggest Soul, R&B, Jazz and Gospel acts of the day played a 14 hour concert in Accra, Ghana, celebrating its 14th anniversary of independence. Performers included Wilson Pickett, Ike & Tina Turner, Santana, Roberta Flack, Les McCann, The Staple Singers, Willie Bobo and Eddie Harris. This was captured on film and subsequently released as Soul to Soul; a documentary of the concert intercut with footage of the performers rediscovering their roots and heritage.
