Performing this week...Live at Ronnie Scott's
by Jeff Beck
Released: Nov 2008
Label: Eagle Rock Ent / Eagle Records
For six straight nights in 2007, the elusive Jeff Beck blew away minds at London's exclusive jazz club Ronnie Scott's. You want to know how revered this guy is? In the crowd at one time or another were Eric Clapton (who played on a couple encores), Jimmy Page, Brian May and Tommy Iommi. Yowza. Beck is on fire here, even if he does play a little too much AOR/jazz fusion. His greatest moments come on "Stratus" and "Blast from the East," where our guitar god gets all atonal and laser gun-like.
