Jeff Beck


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 guitar people have been using for 50 years to make sounds that no one has heard before is truly what gets me off. I love it when people hear my music but can't figure out what instrument I'm playing. What a cool compliment."

Beck burst onto the music scene in 1966 after joining the Yardbirds. Although his stint with the band lasted only 18 months, Beck played on almost all of the group's hits. More importantly, Beck's innovative style heard on classics like "Heart Full of Soul" and "Shapes of Things" helped influence the psychedelic sound of the "60s.

Rolling Stones: Live At The Wiltern (2CD/DVD)

Read "Live At The Wiltern (2CD/DVD)" reviewed by Doug Collette

Cowed as the Rolling Stones may have been by the tragedy that was Altamont in December 1969, 'the greatest rock and roll band in the world' nevertheless came to take some risks as their career evolved in the wake of the Mick Jagger/Keith Richards rapprochement in the late Eighties. Machine-like as the operation became ...

Dean Brown: Global Fusion on Acid

Read "Dean Brown: Global Fusion on Acid" reviewed by Jim Worsley

In memory of Dean Brown. This interview was first published at All About Jazz on April 23, 2021. From the outset, the equation was simple enough. Jazz + rock = fusion. However, whether it was Miles Davis, Larry Coryell, John McLaughlin, or any of the pioneers of fusion, the music has always been far ...

Mary Halvorson: Cloudward

Read "Cloudward" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Guitarist, composer & raconteur Mary Halvorson could very comfortably (and rightfully) wear the sobriquet of “The Charles Mingus of Guitar" if she wanted to. But even that open-ended comparison would limit her as she outdoes herself again on Cloudward. Though it must surely be getting harder to top herself given the string of releases--the ...

Read "Rob Luft: Burning the Candle at Both Ends" reviewed by Peter Jones

What kind of musician gets asked to write a concerto for a 65-piece orchestra--the BBC Concert Orchestra, no less--when still in his twenties, and when he has never previously written for an orchestra? Well, somehow or other, UK guitarist Rob Luft is that kind of musician. Writing for an orchestra is something he has ...
