Jeff Beck: Performing This Week Live At Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club

Jeff Beck: Performing This Week Live At Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club
Eagle Rock | Nov. 25, 2008

From his time with The Yardbirds in the ‘60s, through The Jeff Beck Group and his solo career, Jeff Beck’s unique guitar style of searing guitar licks in a rock-jazz-fusion way is consistent throughout this release and never better.

This 2007 live gig at the famed jazz club Ronnie Scott’s in London features the legendary guitarist in a 16-song career-spanning set that incorporates Rock, Jazz, and Blues. Joining Beck is the young bassist Tal Wilkenfeld that stole the show at last summers Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Festival (check out the solo on Cause We’ve Ended As Lovers – wow!), drummer Vinnie Colaiuta and keyboardist Jason Rebello.

Track Listing
1) Beck’s Bolero
2) Eternity’s Breath
3) Stratus
4) ‘Cause We’ve Ended As Lovers
5) Behind The Veil
6) You Never Know
7) Nadia
8) Blast From The East
9) Led Boots
10) Angels (Footsteps)
11) Scatterbrain
12) Goodbye Pork Pie Hat/Bush With The Blues
13) Space
14) Big Block
15) A Day In The Life
16) Where Were You

If you like Jeff Beck or guitar rich instrumentals as I do you’ll love this CD. As a bonus I really enjoyed the funky bass on track number 6 and the piano on 12. On this CD you’ll find classic tracks that span Beck's career including: 'Beck's Bolero', 'Led Boots', 'Scatterbrain', 'Where Were You', 'Angels (Footsteps)', 'Cause We've Ended As Lovers' and unique version of The Beatles tune 'A Day In The Life'. A DVD of the event, the first such live concert DVD as authorized by Jeff Beck, will be available in 2009.

Peace and Love
