Jazz Musician of the Day: Jeff Beck

Jazz Musician of the Day: Jeff Beck

All About Jazz is celebrating Jeff Beck's birthday today!

Jeff Beck isn\'t your typical guitar legend. His goal, in fact, is to make you forget that he plays guitar. “I don\'t understand why some people will only accept a guitar if it has an instantly recognizable guitar sound," says Beck."Finding ways to use the same ...

Imelda May: Life. Love. Flesh. Blood.

Read "Life. Love. Flesh. Blood." reviewed by Doug Collette

Collaborating with Jeff Beck, Imelda May's kitschy presence as preserved for posterity on the iconic guitar hero's Rock 'n' Roll Party (Honoring Les Paul) (Atco, 2011)is in stark contrast to the sultry black and white portrait that adorns Life. Love. Flesh. Blood.

His jazz and jny: New Orleans roots run throughout most everything he does, though they often share equal space with modern rhythm and/or ...

Saul Losada: Energy - Saul Losada

Read "Energy - Saul Losada" reviewed by Paul Naser

Los Angeles, and Hollywood in particular, is heavily saturated with artists and musicians carving a niche for themselves. Of the many electric guitarists that call the greater L.A. area home, it's more difficult than not to find one that has not in some way been influenced by giants like Jimi Hendrix. Few, however, try to make ...
