Jimi Sounds Like a Rainbow: A Story of the Young Jimi Hendrix

Gary Golio, Javaka Steptoe

Jimi Hendrix was many things: a superstar, a rebel, a hero, an innovator. But first, he was a boy named Jimmy who loved to draw and paint and listen to records. A boy who played air guitar with a broomstick and longed for a real guitar of his own. A boy who asked himself a question: Could someone paint pictures with sound?

This a story of a talented child who learns to see, hear, and interpret the world around him in his own unique way. It is also a story of a determined kid with a vision, who worked hard to become a devoted and masterful artist. Jimi Hendrix—a groundbreaking performer whose music shook the very foundations of rock ‘n’ roll.
