Jeff Beck Live Album On The Way
Jeff Beck is a true rock legend. From his time with The Yardbirds in the '60s, through The Jeff Beck Group and his solo career, his unique guitar style and constant desire to explore new musical sounds have won him the admiration of peers, critics and fans alike.
This sterling '07 live gig at the famed British jazz club Ronnie Scott's in London features the legendary guitarist in a 16-song career-spanning set that incorporates Rock, Jazz, Ballads, Beatles, Blues, Boogie and Bolero. Beck raved it up so much with bassist Tal Wilkenfeld, drummer Vinnie Colaiuta and keyboardist Jason Rebello that the usually sedate London Times gushed, "…perhaps the greatest living guitar virtuoso…combining astonishing technique with a blissful nuance he exercised an almost supernatural control of his fretboard." Jazzwise called it "an absolutely jaw-dropping display of the most exciting, imaginative and inspirational jazz-rock guitar witnessed in years." And London Lite added, "…the kind of visceral, fluid music-making that other guitarists can only dream of."
Recorded over a series of gigs with standing-room-only crowds, the electricity was bouncing off the walls as Beck was clearly inspired himself and egged on by the perfect complement of bandmates. A DVD of the event, the first such live concert DVD as authorized by Jeff Beck, will be available in 2009.
