Jeff Beck

Live+

Guitar Techniques - - MUSIC REVIEWS -

Any­thing from Jeff Beck is a treat and for those lucky enough to catch the meis­ter and his band last year this will be the per­fect re­minder of some ex­cel­lent gigs. As the ti­tle sug­gests, this is a live show – the ‘plus’ refers to a cou­ple of new stu­dio tracks: the manic Tribal (with vo­cals by Ruth Lorenzo) and My Tiled White Floor sung by Veron­ica Bellino (who also han­dles per­cus­sion and key­boards). Both tracks are very at­mo­spheric and fea­ture some out­ra­geous play­ing. Rhonda Smith plays bass on both of these stu­dio tracks and was also the bassist for this tour. She’s a great as­set as are Jonathan Joseph on drums and Ni­co­las Meier on gui­tars. Jimmy Hall (from Wet Wil­lie) on vo­cals com­pletes the band for the live stuff and han­dles it well. Beck delves deep into his back cat­a­logue but even with the tried and tested Morn­ing Dew and Su­per­sti­tion you can never be sure where he’s go­ing to take you. Lit­tle Wing is great but it’s the in­stru­men­tals like Where Were You, Danny Boy and A Day In The Life that show Beck’s unique play­ing style to the full. Mes­meris­ing!
