Album Review

Killer live set from the rock guitar legend. This is all instrumental and showcases Beck’s amazing range from full on rock god soloing to laid back reggae, funk, jazz & blues to prog and a few things in between. Unlike his contemporaries he’s too not bloated or outdated here. Much of this sounds phenomenal - not just him but his whole band.

((((1)))) Really great use of slide and a electric rock working of Ravel’s “Bolero”. The drum sound could be better, though.
(((((2))))) Total prog fusion-funk. Never mind the jam bands this is where a lot of it started (and without the pachouli factor).
((((((3))))))) Funky and guitar wailin’ take on an old Billy Cobham tune.
((((((4)))))) Rather good, mostly mellow fusion jam. A great example of how to play proper fusion/moody 70’s stuff.
(((5))) Reggae-like vibe with some scuttling blues, rock and fusion-ish bits.
((6)) Really good bass & guitar but the 80’s Miami Vice keyboards ruin it! (OK, this is a Jan Hammer tune so, there ya go!).
((((7)))) Slow, twangy, jazz-fusion with prominent bass & some tabla. Rather good.
((((8)))) Uptempo mix, jammin’ on blues, jazz fusion and some slinky funk parts but then throws in a blast of prog at 2:00 as well as a pretty cool drum solo.
(((((9))))) Wow! Led Zep & Zappa-ish riffs (after all he was friends with Jimmy Page) and more crazy collisions of fusion, funk, blues & prog.
((((10)))) Laid back but still kinda funky. Great guitar tone and use of note resonation.
((((11))))) Very busy prog & guitar hero stuff. Lots of wild notes scrambling about but it’s also under some form of control at times.
(((((12)))) Slow, “late night” blues, then gets squirrelly with a few excessive bursts then back again.
((((13)))) Fast jazz fusion with some great drumming.
(((14))) Lots of bass, and tricky guitar stuff like hammer-on/pull offs, lots of note bends and swaggery bits. A pretty cool jam.
(15) Pointless Beatles cover.
(((16))) So-so, mellow, minimal fusion, ends with applause.
