Reviews

Filmed on 9 June 2010 at the Irridium Jazz Club in New York City, forever associated with the legendary Les Paul, this DVD captures Jeff Beck celebrating the great man with a selection of Les Paul songs and other great rock 'n' roll tracks on what would have been Les Paul s 95th birthday. Jeff Beck is joined by some very special guests including Imelda May and her band led by Darrel Higham on many of the tracks plus appearances by Gary US Bonds, Brian Setzer and Trombone Shorty. The intimate setting puts you right there in the audience for a performance featuring stunning musicianship and truly great songs.

Format: DVD
This a great DVD but it will not appeal to all Jeff Beck fans (It Will appeal to Most Jeff Beck fans.) The recording and venue are brilliant. Imelda May totally shares the spotlight with Jeff Beck. The impressive Darrel Highman also sings several songs and he sounds like Gene Vincent and Elvis Presley. Key tracks are mentoned below. (Many other tracks merit plaudits too).

Double Talkin Baby= An important song because it enables Jeff to master the riffs of one of his heroes, Cliff Gallup.
Poor Boy= Imelda May's vocals and Jeff Beck's guitar playing brilliantly blend.
How High The Moon= A vintage tribute to Les Paul. It's been played at Jeff's concerts. The guitar playing is very skillful.
Bye Bye Blues= Replete with a refined Jeff Beck showcasing his eclectic guitar talents.
Tiger Rag= Another song that verifies Imelda May's vocals are a perfect fit for Beck's azeman licks.
Peter Gunn= A great instrumental dominated by Trombone Shorty's skills.
Rockin Is Our Business= Good Darrel Highman vocals, excellent Leo Green trombone work and an intense minute of Jeff Beck's blistering riffs.
Walking In The Sand= Very dramatic and virtuosic riffs by Jeck Beck, and Imelda May is great again. A major highlight.
Twenty Flight Rock= Exemplary guest appearance by Brian Setzer.
The Train Kept A Rolling= A classic rock track performed at a blistering level.
Apache and Sleep Walk=Jeff adroitly nails these refined and pleasant instrumentals with his impeccable command and control of treble tones.

In a word this DVD is exceptional. Beck uses his violent eloquence and amazing tones and sounds to enhance almost all the guitar solos. Imelda May is also key as a wonderful vocalist.

Here we have the ultimate feel good live DVD, as Jeff Beck gives us another lesson in the art of great guitar playing with some pretty impressive guests.This is not the usual JB but here we have a gig in honour of the legendary Les Paul. The wonderful Imelda May and her band back up Jeff as does Jason Rebello from his own band. Add to that rock n roll legend Gary US Bonds (New Orleans), from the crecent city itself Trombone Shorty, who's band toured as Jeff's special guests on European Tour 2010, Brian Setzer (Mr Rock N Roll himself), and a superb horn section including Leo Green.What a line-up for what must be one of the years premier DVD releases.The songs are classic rock n roll ones and just listen to Jeff's solo playing on Apache and Sleepwalk, his stunning slide playing with Imelda's singing on 'Poor Boy'. Imelda's husband and band leader proves he's a very good vocalist himself, Darrell Higham.Yes 27 rock classics that will bring good times everytime it's played.One song 'How High The Moon' the old Les Paul/Mary Ford hit has been played on Jeff's recent tour and here it sounds awesome especially when you remember the original was multi-tracked.
Imelda May just keeps on getting better everytime I see or hear her, I've seen her several times over recent years with the Mike Sanchez Band, also singing withj Blue Harlem,she's always had star quality but her stage craft is just so good now, a real alround entertainer with that wonderful voice, surely the best around todays popular music scene.
One of the joys of this set is it was recorded live at the Iridium Jazz Club in NYC, and Jeff and Imelda are doing a short Us tour in March,please Jeff do come and do a few in the UK as well.

Having previously purchased "Crazy Legs" - Jeff Beck and the Big Town Playboy's salute to Gene Vincent and the Blue Caps and especially "Cliff Gallup", the lead guitarist in 1993, I was expecting a lot !

I wasn't disappointed and Imelda May was stunning - a brilliant recording.

This is probably one of the best music dvds I've bought in a long time. The musicians seem to be really enjoying themselves. The set with the Les Paul/Mary Ford material is fun. The other tracks consist of classic 50's and early 60's (?) classics and are all very well performed. I think most people watching this dvd will, like me, have their own stand out moments but in my opinion all of the 27 tracks were excellent. I would recomment this dvd to anyone who likes music and for any music historians out there, there are things on this dvd that you simply wont find anywhere else and certainly not as respectfully performed.

A superb production. Very entertaining but amazing because of Immelda May's contribution with fantastic, disciplined, overdubbing just like the Mary Ford recordings. To do that stuff like that talent is only the first requirement. Skill, taste, experience…….& the rest. Great!

Jeff Beck is a master of the electric guitar. On this excellent DVD he rips through a string of Les Paul/Mary Ford tunes and a whole load of Rock'n'Roll classics with breathtaking ability. He is supported by a great band including the wonderful Imelda May on the female vocal parts. If you play guitar and/or love Rock'n'Roll this DVD is a must-buy.
