‘Blues for Jimi’ finds the former Thin Lizzy guitarist, who passed away of a heart attack on Feb. 8, 2011, tearing through 12 Hendrix classics with his customary skill and passion. Among the songs performed were ‘Purple Haze,’ ‘The Wind Cries Mary’ and ‘Fire.’ The evening closed with ‘Voodoo Child (Slight Return).’

Moore was backed by Dave Bronze on bass and Darrin Mooney on drums.
