Biography

Jeff Beck isn’t your typical guitar legend. His goal, in fact, is to make you forget that he plays guitar.

“I don’t understand why some people will only accept a guitar if it has an instantly recognizable guitar sound,” says Beck. “Finding ways to use the same guitar people have been using for 50 years to make sounds that no one has heard before is truly ... Read more in Amazon's Jeff Beck Store

Editorial Reviews

In April 2010, Jeff Beck treated a small, lucky audience to an intimate and unique concert at The Grammy Museum in Los Angeles. Jeff played songs off his new album Emotion and Commotion, and classics from his acclaimed career including "People Get Ready" and "Brush With The Blues". This is a record of a very special night.

NOTE: "Nessun Dorma" Best Pop Instrumental and "Hammerhead" Best Rock Instrumental Aptly Won At The 2011 Grammy Awards."
A few hundred very fortunate people had the grand oppportunity to see and hear Jeff Beck perform at the Grammy Museum. They witnessed a superlative performance. Beck's skillful rendition of "Corpus Christi Carol" featured long sustained notes that swooped, soared and mourned with all the hurt of a human heart. "Hammerhead" allowed Jeff Beck to release his arsenal with wah, wah pedal, riveting fireworks and knifing solos. "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" is a gem that is tasty and emotive when played with Beck's bare fingers. "Brush With The Blues" is a concert favorite that accentautes exemplary blues and intense and riveting hard rock riffs. "How High The Moon" is a pleasant detour and tribute to the iconic Les Paul. "People Get Ready" is a wondrously performed soul instrumental of a great Curtis Mayfield song.

Once again Beck performed the famous "A Day In The Life" by the Beatles. His version of the song is so impressive it earned him a Grammy for best rock instrumental performance. My favorite track is "Nessun Dorma" an Italian aria that Beck turns into a poignant, moving and ravishing masterpiece. Jeff Beck can truly make his guitar sing, weep, roar, rejoice and lament. He is the paramount master of his craft. Jeff Beck proves that in his hands the fretboard can create more sounds than any keyboard can.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting new material in live version November 26, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Jeff Beck releases yet another CD rather shortly after "Emotion and Commotion". Compositions such as "Corpus Christi Carol", "Hammerhead" and "Nessun Dorma" are included in both CDs. The live "From the Grammy Museum" version of "Hammerhead" is much looser and bluesier than the studio version. It is obvious that the band comprising Rhonda Smith (bass), Jason Rebello (keyboards) and Narada Michael Walden from later versions of The Mahavishnu Orchestra (drums) has infused something that the original lacked. "Brush with the Blues" is very lyrically played, but it would not have hurt to have Charles Mingus'"Goodbye Porkpie Hat" as an intro -which used to be the case previously - during many live appearances. "A Day in the Life" (Lennon/ McCartney) is also included - which is nice.

"People get ready" by Curtis Mayfield is fluently played, but there will always be comparisons with an instrumental vs. having Rod Stewart on vocals. "How high the Moon" is Jeff Beck's tribute to the music of Les Paul and Mary Ford. In live appearances this piece has been played on Gibson's signature Jeff Beck "ox blood" Les Paul instead of Stratocasters that Mr. Beck usually utilizes to great effect. All in all this CD is a very nice supplement to the 2010 CD and ongoing tour; highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Effort October 27, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Clocking in at slightly over 32 minutes, this CD is full of wonderful playing by and is well worth the listen. Not the ultimate live Jeff experience and not a starting point as an introduction to Jeff's musical prowess, but a solid effort nonetheless. Highlights for me include A Day In The Life, Nessun Dorma and Brush With The Blues. It loses a star for the CDR and short duration. Worth many listens to the dedicated Jeff Beck fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars He just keeps getting better... November 11, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
So many of the greatest stars of the sixties have either dimmed (Dylan, Stones, McCartney, Van Morrison, Ray Davies, Sam Moore, Clapton, James Brown, Brian Wilson, etc., etc.) or died (Hendrix, Otis Redding, Solomon Burke, John Lennon, Keith Moon, Al Jackson, etc., etc.), but Jeff Beck--who was one of the most creative guitarists of that generation--has somehow managed to keep getting better and better, year after year--as evidenced by this short (32 minute) but appropriately discounted and beautifully recorded new CD. In recent years, Beck has become increasingly eclectic in his repertoire, which now includes the likes of Puccini, Harold Arlen, and Les Paul/Mary Ford--and this may in part account for the growing subtlety of his playing, without losing one iota of his edge. At a time where there is very little new music that I truly look forward to hearing, Jeff Beck leaves all the competition--past and present--totally in the dust.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Most Important Guitarist in the World Nails It March 28, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Jeff Beck has been my hero ever since I heard "I'm Not Talking" on the first U.S. released Yardbirds album, For Your Love (Epic Records, 1965). I can't say that I've loved every release of his as much as, perhaps, Wired (1976) or You Had It Coming (2001), but anyone who knows me well has heard me say that I would buy an album of Jeff Beck sneezing. What I've really been pining for, even after the triumph of Performing This Week...Live At Ronnie Scott's, was Jeff emphasizing primarily his melodic, emotional playing. This set delivers on that potential beyond my wildest dreams. It is sheer ecstasy for me. I have just let it loop on my car stereo for weeks and I've bought additional copies for friends and band members alike.

Now, listen up. Jeff Beck is The Most Important Guitarist In the World because he has created more completely innovative "guitar language" than anyone else, all of it essentially melodic, although he has created a huge store of odd noise effects as well. He was creating genre-changing guitar language on Top 40 hit recordings before either Clapton or Hendrix had any product released in the U.S. If you subscribe to the notion that Rock Music is different in form and substance from Rock and Roll Music (as I do), then there is no doubt that Jeff Beck is the architect of "The Rock Guitar Solo". More significantly, he has continued to create new guitar language throughout his career, albeit sporadically, right up to and including this set.

This set does not include any number of his best known crowd-pleasers. Jeff, more than any other legacy rock artist, has been able to retire more "hits" from his active repertoire than anyone I can think of.
