iTunes Review

Jeff Beck may be the most commercially under-appreciated guitarist of his generation. While his fellow guitarists in the Yardbirds, Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page, both reaped the rewards of FM radio and SRO arena tours, Beck has often played the sideman to great artists. Yet, there isn’t a guitarist alive who doesn’t appreciate Beck’s incredible tone, his immaculate sense of timing and his unpredictable solos that always add an adventurous drama to whatever he touches. 2003’s Jeff toyed with electronica, but 2010’s Emotion & Commotion shifts back towards the blues, jazz, rock and Beck’s own unpredictable brand of cover material. Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’ “I Put a Spell on You” and Harold Arlen’s “Over the Rainbow” are the better known tunes given the Beck treatment. Joss Stone adds vocals to “Spell” and her co-write on “There’s No Other Me.” Producers Steve Lipson and Trevor Horn make this a BIG sounding album, but it all comes down to Beck’s impeccable guitar lyricism, as warm and exciting as it gets.

This old rocker guitar hero dude does it again and again and again - and never, ever disappoints!

Jeff Beck simply rules!!! Go get it!


Terning: 4

CD: Når jeg først får kloa i en Jeff Beck-plate forventer jeg rock 'n' roll-riff. Sånn rent bortsett fra når Beck henter fram fuzzpedalen og Joss Stone bak notene til "Over the rainbow" og "Nessun dorma" blir skittent. Sånn Jeff-Beck-fra-Yardbird-blues-skittent. Sånn som jeg husker ham. Mannen er en gitarguru. Men "I put a spell on you" er også pokker så alene på plata. Mange av låtene blir litt for Mezzoforte/Mads Eriksen/Knut Reiersrud & Iver Kleive-koselig for mine ører. Det står jo Jeff Beck på coveret. Det skal låte av 60-tallet! Når nå det er sagt er det udiskutabelt vakkert å høre Beck lire av seg nevnte "Nessun dorma" sammen med et symfoniorkester på 64 mann. Og jommen får vi ikke høre både hammondorgel og mongolsk strupesang også … Når du har spilt gitar i over 40 år har du lov til å leke litt. Og Jeff leker på denne plata. Den er nydelig arrangert og produsert. De som har billett til konserten på Moldejazz 22. juli har noe å se fram til. Mens jeg trøster meg med platene fra 60-tallet.

While he was as innovative as Jimmy Page, as tasteful as Eric Clapton, and nearly as visionary as Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck never achieved the same commercial success as any of those contemporaries, primarily because of the haphazard way he approached his career. After Rod Stewart left the Jeff Beck Group in 1971, Beck never worked with a charismatic lead singer who could have helped sell his music to a wide audience. Furthermore, he was simply too idiosyncratic, moving from heavy metal to jazz fusion...
