Los Lobos singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist David Hidalgo, Grammy-nominated North Mississippi Allstars guitarist Luther Dickinson and Native American band Indigenous frontman Mato Nanji met as featured artists on the Experience Hendrix tour. The tour gathers together guitarists such as Eric Johnson, Steve Vai, Buddy Guy and others to pay musical tribute to guitar icon Jimi Hendrix. 3 Skulls And The Truth is their collaborative debut disc.
Here the group share guitar and vocal duties and although the rhythm is often in the guitars, the trio are backed by Jeff Martin on drums and Steve Evans on bass. The lead-in is titled “Have My Way With You”. While it initially has a primitive, raw opening, the song--written by Steve “Lightnin” Malcolm, Dickinson and Nanji—turns out to be one of the best songs on the album.
It is followed “I’m A Fool”. This second selection is the work of Nanji and his wife Leah. While the song is obviously not a group effort the shared instrumental and vocal responsibilities make it the band's own.
