Biography
After serving as head of United Artists Records' jazz division during the 1960s (producing classics such as 1963's Money Jungle by the trio of Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus, and Max Roach and as well as recordings by Art Blakey, Kenny Dorham, and Oliver Nelson), Bostonian Alan Douglas met Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock in 1969, and gained control of the rights to Hendrix's music following the pioneering guitarist's death the following year. His production work on unfinished Hendrix tracks released posthumously on albums such as 1975's Crash Landing garnered considerable controversy for the re-recording and overdubbing Douglas employed. The producer retained the rights to Hendrix's music for a 20-year period from 1975 to 1995, when those rights reverted to the Hendrix family. During the following years, Douglas revived his own label -- having released landmark albums by the likes of John McLaughlin and the Last Poets on the Douglas imprint during the 1970s -- and issued albums by jazz icons including Miles Davis and Dizzy Gillespie recorded live at the Monterey Jazz Festival. At the age of 82, Alan Douglas died at his home in Paris in June 2014 after suffering complications from a fall. ~ TiVo Staff, Rovi
