Product Description

Like you ve never seen him before.
As Joe Bonamassa grows his reputation as one of the world s greatest guitar players, he is also evolving into a charismatic blues-rock star and singer-songwriter of stylistic depth and emotional resonance. His ability to connect with live concert audiences is transformational, and his latest project, the live acoustic 2-disc CD/DVD/Blu-ray Joe Bonamassa: An Acoustic Evening at the Vienna Opera House (J&R Adventures) captures the magnetism and maturity Bonamassa showcases as an artist.

Joe Bonamassa: An Acoustic Evening at the Vienna Opera House, to be released in March 2013, was recorded at the historic Vienna Opera House last July during a very special two-week long unplugged tour, played to a limited audience over seven exclusive European shows. Varying from his predominantly electric blues shows, this presentation was an all-acoustic concert performance, making it a unique and very special show fans had been waiting years to experience.

Produced by long-time collaborator Kevin Shirley, Joe is supported on his vintage acoustic instruments by an eclectic assortment of craftsmen from around the globe. They include: Gerry O Connor, a music historian and traditional Irish fiddler from many generations of Irish music, on Irish fiddle, mandolin, and Irish banjo; Swedish multi-instrumentalist Mats Wester will play the Nyckelharpa, a Swedish keyed-fiddle; Los Angeles keyboard maestro Arlan Schierbaum, whose extensive recording career focuses on organic instruments, plays accordions, celeste, toy pianos, and more; and legendary Puerto Rican percussionist, Lenny Castro, whose works spans genres and reads like a who's who of artists, including the Rolling Stones, Sir Elton John, Eric Clapton, Boz Scaggs, Toto, Stevie Wonder, David Sanborn, Avenged Sevenfold, Little Feat, Tom Petty, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and many more

Customer Reviews

Joe Bonamassa is one talented man.
Maggie A. Smith
I enjoyed this filmed concert more for the quality of the sound and cinematography than for the music - I think I just like other styles of acoustic music better.
D. Sutton
If you are a guitar player, also like me, you will be completely amazed at the skill and abilities of Joe Bonamassa.

Watched this on PBS last night, and I was thoroughly impressed. I have been a fan of Joe for a while, have seen him live with his electric set (even met him at a guitar show once, nice guy). But this set is something altogether different. The music is very stripped down, basic and very authentic American blues type stuff but with a more cosmopolitan feel that shows various influences beyond the blues. To me he really comes across as a new statesman of American blues music, and he owns this stage in Vienna, along with an excellent backing band and about a dozen acoustic guitars of various vintage surrounding him. No blazing or wailing, just lots of impassioned and authentic guitar chops, along with his growing prowess as an authentic blues-based singer, like an old soul channeling Robert Johnson and the classics of the genre for the contemporary era. If you like the blues, Joe or just want to witness perhaps one of the best talents to come along in a long time, get this disk.

I've seen joe now about 12 times and everytime i see him thinking he can't do anything i haven't seen he does. He has Tone like i've never heard. His projection and the way he puts a song across is second to none. I'll go see him as many times as i can...That's what he deserves!!!

thx Joe for always putting somthing out there that makes me realize why i love music the way i do

Joe Bonamassa's Acoustic Evening at the Vienna Opera House is a musical triumph. Producer Kevin Shirley teamed up four fantastic musicians to play with Joe: Gerry O'Connor from Ireland, Mats Wester from Sweden, & Arlan Schierbaum & Lenny Castro from the U.S.A. These five artists had never before met, & after 72 hours played together in this concert with amazing precision & beauty. Along with the 12 guitars Joe used, the other musicians added an Irish banjo, fiddle, mandolin, mandola, baby piano, nyckelharpa, harmonium, accordion, glockenspiel, & a host of ethnic percussion instruments. The music they produced has a blues base but also includes a bluegrass & country-folk sound. Joe's voice has reached an impressive level of maturity & his acoustic guitar work ranks him with the best in the world. In Joe's own words "this was a risky venture", however, it was not only successful it is Joe's greatest achievement. This concert reminded me of Ry Cooder's documentary "Buena Vista Social Club", & Joe's slide guitar work on track #8 has a strong Ry Cooder sound to it. All five of these musicians played together like a finely made Swiss watch & improvised perfectly giving all the compositions a unique an entertaining sound. The Vienna Opera House was the ideal location for this concert.

Primarily a guitar rocker of the first order, Joe switches gears and lowers the decibel level with this innovative concert film. Joining him are some diverse musicians like Gerry O'Connor (banjo & fiddle), Mats Wester (nyckelharpa & mandola), Arlan Schierbaum (harmonium, accordion, piano & glockenspiel) and Lenny Castro (percussion). This concert reminded me of Bruce Springsteen's journey into folk music with "The Sessions Band."

Bonamassa tone things down and as the title suggests, discards the big power amps. As usual he glides his way through 9 or 10 guitars including some vintage ones. Many of the songs are his own including the well-received "Driving towards the Daylight." At the same he finds some other songs by Tom Waits, Robert Johnson, Paul Rodgers and others work for this set. Interspersed during some of the song transitions are brief comments by the band members. While they are short enough not to interfere with the pace they are somewhat distracting. Not a big deal.

The audio quality is DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and is excellent as you might expect. There is also a lossless 2.0 stereo mix. An excellent 1080p transfer works well with the low stage lighting. The direction is very good with plenty of focus on the players and their nimble fingers at work. Excellent all around.

We saw this show on public tv but suffered through endless pitches to send money. decided to buy the disc. it is quite unusual. the instruments are not familiar and the sound is unique. there is an understated excitement and artistry.

If you like to kick back and listen to some really GREAT Guitar then this is your man. I have been listening for years and when he came to Nashville last year he became my all time favorite over Hendrix and Vaughn!
