Experience is an album by the jazz group the World Saxophone Quartet released by the Canadian Justin Time label. The album features performances by Hamiet Bluiett, Bruce Williams, Oliver Lake and David Murray, with guests Craig Harris, Billy Bang, Matthew Garrison and Gene Lake and is dedicated to Jimi Hendrix.
The Allmusic review by Alex Henderson awarded the album 4 stars, stating, "Some die-hard Hendrix lovers might nitpick about the absence of their personal favorites -- perhaps "Purple Haze," perhaps "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" or "Castles Made of Sand"; regardless, Experience is an excellent CD that finds the WSQ still going strong 26 years after its formation.".
