Editors’ Notes

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.

Customer Reviews

Emotion and Commotion

Fabulous new stuff from the master... one problem for me though.... made a mistake and downloaded a couple of songs and THEN purchased the fine album, expecting to get the excellent "Poor Boy" which is featured as "album only" only to find you don't get it if you "complete" an album... no fair, apple! As for Beck, and his guests. stunning as always... inspirational and filled with taste and emotion.


Serene for me is the most insperational song I have heard in a very long time. Typical to many Jeff Beck performances, the ability to take you on a journey to a far away land without the clutter of words.

66 and still rockin

Jeff Beck is still in excellent form, dynamic, driving, smart, and fun. This album takes advantage of all of Beck's strengths and shows how thoughtful and progressive a musician can be, even after 45 years of recording. This is a must have for Jeff Beck fans and those who love a great musician and blistering guitar player!

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...
