5.0 out of 5 stars Jeff Beck - Performing this week live at Ronnie Scotts, December 21, 2008
Everyone has a favourite: guitarist that it. Mine has always and forever will be Jeff Beck. The most accomplished instrumentalist that few people have heard of. From the earliest days in the Yardbirds, through his first band with Rod Stewart on Vocals, Ronnie Wood on Bass and Mickey Waller on Drums Beck has laid the foundation for virtually every genre of post Beatles rock. This live recording takes early cuts like Beck's Bolero - (written by Beck and Jimmie Page) and which featured a manic Kieth Moon on the original recording and demonstrates in stark relief where and why Beck's talents lay wringing, wrestling, cajoling and seducing guitar sounds that none have ever been able to emulate. Yes many will claim Hendrix was the innovator - but for those in and around the London Clubs of the mid 60's they will have noticed or even remember nights when Hendrix would watch Beck; some have even recalled Beck and he jamming late into the night.
Once Beck had tired of "plank-spanking" (post Beck, Bogart and Appice), Beck hooked up with George Martin and took on what is now known as Jazz-Rock. Beck plays today fusing jazz, rock and an electro/techo style all his own - and does so with a free rein. Even the Beatles Day in the Life displays a musical understanding which leave most observers breathless - or may be that might be speechless.
This guy is now 64 and is rarely less than astonishing. Guitarists and music lovers alike should listen to this album if only to hear the full vocal range of the electric guitar in the hands of the acknowledged master!
