Jeff Beck on the rockabilly set + Big Town Playboys interview
The four-piece band features the outstanding talents of Vinnie Colaiuta on drums, Jason Rebello on keyboards and the new sensation on bass, the talented young Tal Wilkenfield from Australia. The Stevie Wonder 'Cause we've ended as lovers' is a good track to sample the multi-talented line-up, but every track is a winner in its own way.
The guest artists, Joss Stone, Imogen Heap and Eric Clapton all make valuable contributions and there is a very enjoyable extended extra bonus with 7 items featuring the opening set played by the Rockability Band who all happened to be in London at the time and who reprise an earlier disc which had never before been played 'live'.
Eagle Rock has provided a recording with involving camera work with crisp imaging. The sound is presented in excellent DTS 5.1, DD 5.1 and stereo.
This will give enormous pleasure to anyone to whom the program appeals and is a perfect example of Jeff Beck at the very top of his considerable game. For such purchasers this will be an unmissable 5 star issue.
The concert at Ronnie Scott's is absolutely fantastic. The audio and video quality is first class and the performances by the artists is second to none. The Rockabilly extra is brilliant with some brilliant guitar work by Jeff Beck. Not something you would expect from Beck but he explains in the interview on the disc.
Would have loved to have been there, Ronnie Scott's is a great venue, small and intimate and real musicians. If you are fan of Jeff Beck then this disc is the next best thing to seeing him in this great venue. First class disc, buy it you won't be disappointed.
The range of track styles is enormous from good old 'Beck's Bolero' to Stevie Wonder's 'Cause We've Ended As Lovers' - the latter of which contains a bass solo from Tal Wilkenfeld which almost has Beck in tears. Jason Rebello is masterful on keyboards, flipping from jazz piano or reggae to huge analogue string sounds with sparkling electronic piano glissandos, while Vinnie Colaiuta on drums gives a masterclass in percussion, demostrating a feel with either brushes or sticks (& even finger-tapped electronic pads) that is very rarely heard.
Jeff Beck himself does what he does best - to play the Stratocaster like no-one else, using volume, tone & pitch variation on-the-fly in a way which is totally unique & is utterly complimented by the other three musicians on the stage with him. The final track 'Where Were You' featuring just Beck & Rebello is pure emotion & leaves you thinking "That can't be the end..."
Whatever your musical taste there's a track on here that'll make you stop in amazement & simply envy the four performers on the stage.
Altogether a cohesive package n why Jeff Beck doesn't tour Sith these guys defeats me! They work brilliantly as a team.
The extra concert featuring a rockabilly set highligths Jeff Beck's supreme guitar control. Picture and sound are of very high quality. I would highly recommend this Bluray-DVD. Oh, and Eric Clapton pops by. /Peter
