About this deal

Il concerto si snoda senza cali di tensione di con un repertorio che spazia durante tutto l'arco della carriera di Jeff. Together with a few chosen guests and his regular band of the moment he reminds us of the many musical periods he has played through in his career. The tribute to Prince with 'Purple Rain' is easily up there with Prince's own remarkable guitar prowess, so honours his memory well.

The author of articles and books on the music of Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa and Albert King, among others, his latest project is the forthcoming book, Hendrix Now! Of course, these were Jeff Beck‘s followers, many of whom had seen him live throughout the various phases of his classic rock career, from the Yardbirds to the days of the Jeff Beck Group with Rod Stewart, out on the Jan Hammer Highway and into the future with Beck’s 2016 album, Loud Hailer.

In the summer of 2016, guitar virtuoso Jeff Beck celebrated 50 years of his musical career with an extraordinary concert at the famous Hollywood Bowl. What’s funny is I did not realize that he was the one on the Album I had bought, as it looks painted on the cover. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. The ever-current Beck has moved on with a new kick-ass femme bassist in Rhonda Smith and the rock-steady rhythm guitarist Carmen Vandenberg.

Beck set the stage ablaze with incredible live versions of “For Your Love”, “Beck’s Bolero”, “Cause We’ve Ended As Lovers”, “Big Block”, “Over Under Sideways Down”, “A Day In The Life”, “Blue Wind”, and more. He’s also hugely respected by his peers, and is clearly and deeply committed to playing what he wants to play rather than chasing new markets. At least I’ll be gettin to see McLaughlin in less than a month with the great Jimmy Herring opening and doing a 3rd set of all Mahavishnu stuff with John.Perhaps not being entirely obsessed with the instrument, 'hot rod' cars seemed to rage an internal war, meant that he could look outside of the confines of 'playing guitar', sure in the knowledge that he had the 'technique'; he only needed a little practice. Rosie Bones, the Cockney crooner of Beck’s latest studio configuration, got the crowd in the mood by stalking through it with a flashing-light-festooned movie camera, then hopping up on the stage’s front skirt to pump out Loud Hailer’s “The Revolution Will Be Televised. This album is a bit different from his previous live stuff in that he revisits not just his solo back catalogue but the stuff he did with The Yardbirds, and the Jeff Beck group featuring Rod Stewart.

Gibbons, Jan Hammer, Beth Hart, Jimmy Hall and Buddy Guy and concluded with a group encore of "Purple Rain" in honor of Prince. Then it was off to the races, with Beck leading his ensemble through a rapid-fire half-dozen Yardbirds and Jeff Beck Group rockers.And I went to alot of Allman Brothers, Lynard Skynard, Blues, Rock, Quadrofonic, and Progressive Rock ” Yes”, “Jethro Tull” with his Flute, and Frank Zappa. But little did u know I would again years later see him in Concerts and leading up to his 50th Anniversary. The show climaxed with the guests all joining forces for an exhilarating encore performance of "Purple Rain" in tribute to Prince, who had passed away a couple of months before the concert. Beck’s collaboration with the keyboardist was the cornerstone of his most creative period, and with this onstage reunion (“I am so thrilled to have the great Jan Hammer on keyboards,” Beck introduced), the faithful were satiated. I have 4 other people's versions of 'I'd Rather Go Blind' in my collection, all of them good, but Beth can trawl those emotions up from deep inside herself and slap you in the face with them that bit better.
