The Paramount Live Concert DVD For Guitar Fans !,
This review is from: Performing This Week: Live at Ronnie Scott's Jazz [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
In late 2007 Jeff Beck enthralled and captivated London music fans during a series of spellbinding concerts at the revered Ronnie Scott's Jazz venue. He brilliantly executed instrumentals that covered jazz fusion, blues, hard rock and electronica genres. Highlights included the poignant and nonpareil "Where Were You," the emotive "Angel (Footsteps)," the riveting "Beck's Bolero," the astounding "Blast From The East," the searing "Scatterbrain," and the exotic "Nadia". His amazing and climactic "A Day In The Life," has rightfully been nominated for a Grammy Award for best instrumental performance. Jeff Beck can coax and summon a universe of sounds from his guitar without using hardly any effects. His whammy bar magic and plethotra of tones are incomparable. His fingers and fretboard are hardwired to his heart and soul. Even though playing guitar is not a competition, Jeff Beck plays better than everyone. Special guest appearances by Eric Clapton, Joss Stone and Imogen Heap further enhanced this must buy DVD. Jeff Beck is the paramount UK guitar icon.
