5.0 out of 5 stars Guitar heaven with Jeff Beck and his band on inspirational form, 6 Sep 2012
This review is from: Performing This Week: Live at Ronnie Scott's Jazz [Blu-ray] [2009] [US Import] (Blu-ray)
In this wonderful recording from Ronnie Scott's jazz club, released in 2008, Jeff Beck delivers an absolutely definitive demonstration of guitar techniques coupled with a remarkable level of musical and sonic imagination. There are many fine guitarists on the world stage but few can match Beck's equal mastery of so many varied and differing genres including blues, rock, jazz, soul, funk, reggae and Asian influences - and all heard to perfection on this inspired night.

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. For such purchasers this will be an unmissable 5 star issue.

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.
