Review: Jeff Beck – ‘Jeff Beck Rock ‘n’ Roll Party Honoring Les Paul’ DVD

I finally got around to picking up a copy of Jeff Beck’s latest performance DVD today and after watching it all I can say is WOW! Jeff puts in a stellar performance on some classic Rock ‘n’ Roll hits. As a huge fan of Jeff Beck’s solo work, especially his albums released in the past decade or so, I was a little worried that this Les Paul party might leave me searching for Jeff’s ‘You Had It Coming’ record (a personal favourite of mine), thankfully this was not the case at all.

This intimate show, which was filmed at the Iridium Jazz Club in New York City, reaffirms Jeff Beck as the greatest guitar player of all time in my heart and mind. Jeff really puts in a performance that only a guitar legend could. The band welcomes special guests; Imelda May, Darrel Higham, Brian Setzer, Gary U.S. Bonds and Trombone Shorty as Jeff and the band perform rock ‘n’ roll classics and handpicked favourites, including; Baby Lets Play House, Train Kept A Rollin’, How High The Moon, Bye Bye Blues, Sleepwalk and Rock Around The Clock to name just a few of the 27 song strong set.

As ever, Jeff allows the exceptional talent within the band to shine and does not hog the limelight at any point, this gives the show a wonderful depth and breadth. In all this is a fitting tribute to Les Paul from one humble legend to another.

Enjoy this excerpt from the Jeff Beck Rock ‘n’ Roll Party Honoring Les Paul DVD.
