"Wow" is the first word that comes to mind in trying to describe this concert footage of Jeff Beck at this London jazz club, "Ronnie Scott's."
I have seen Jeff Beck play guitar a few times here and there over the years, but never more than a couple songs at one venue. Now, I pretty much have an idea of all his guitar-playing talents......and it's even more awesome than I had guessed they would be. This review, thus, is for people not all that familiar with Beck's talents. If you already are, you've already bought this DVD.
In this concert, you see Beck play everything from jazz to blues to rock to ballads to "space music." The camera-work is very good in that you really get a good luck at Jeff's ability on the guitar. You see how he produces some of his amazing sounds.
You'll also see what a great band he has put together. Vinnie Colaiuta on drums, Jason Rebello on keyboards and Tal Wilkenfeld on bass are all exceptional musicians and fun to watch. All four members of this group can be seen constantly smiling and really enjoying themselves.
A great addition to the Blu-Ray disc, and a reason to buy it, is the bonus material beginning with the seven-song rockabilly set with Beck and The Big Town Playboys. These guys do a great job of sounding like the late '50s rockers like Gene Vincent and Carl Perkins. It ends with a great sax solo on the old Bill Doggett number, "Honky Tonk." In addition, there are interviews with everyone all they're all interesting.....really. This Blu-Ray disc is worth the extra money and highly-recommended.
