Performing This Week… Live At Ronnie Scott’s
Considering how much of Beck’s reputation comes from his incendiary live shows, it took a while to capture the magic on tape. But this CD/DVD taken from a week-long residency at London’s famous jazz club made the wait worthwhile. If the impetuosity of youth is missing, the range of his awesome talent is displayed comprehensively.
The set covers Beck’s entire career. There are guest spots from Eric Clapton and vocalists Imogen Heap and Joss Stone, and some unexpected covers including a haunting version of The Beatles’ A Day In The Life.
