Jeff Beck is undeniably one of the world s greatest guitar players. Technically brilliant, he is renowned for pushing musical boundaries and has excelled across many different genres from rock and jazz to pop and blues. Live In Tokyo was recorded at the Tokyo Dome City Hall in Japan on April 9th this year. These Japanese dates were the first to feature Jeff Beck s new backing band of Jonathan Joseph (drums), Nicolas Meier (guitars) and Rhonda Smith (bass) and the setlist includes some material from his new, as yet unreleased, studio album. In contrast to Beck s previous visual releases, both filmed in small clubs, Live In Tokyo is filmed in a major concert arena and has a very different, more expansive feel. Jeff Beck is a true guitar legend and this show captures him at his very best.
In this 1999 concert Jeff Beck once again displays the immense creativity and technical precision that have made him an idol to three generations of jazz and rock fans. This concert finds Beck at the end of the 1990's, having spent the preceding two decades developing both his artistry and his status as a guitarist, composer, and leader, working for artists from Kate Bush to Guns N' Roses but releasing few albums of his own. Then, in 1999, he released "Who Else!" in collaboration with Jennifer Batten, lead guitarist for Michael Jackson's biggest tours. That album underlies the concert here, in which Batten herself performs. Numbers like "What Mama Said," "Psycho Sam," "Brush With The Blues," and "A Space For The Papa" are drawn from "Who Else," which mixes Beck's brand of fusion with electronica, and showcase Beck's persistent commitment to innovation.
Jeff Beck is no stranger to Friday Music. We continue to strive to bring the fans his greatest music ever recorded in both 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl and now on remastered compact disc collectors editions…..Jeff Beck Live At B.B. King Blues Club is such a wonderful performance, and this unique session fortunately was captured at this intimate setting.

SHREDDERS UNITE!
The "+" in the title of Live+ refers to the two studio recordings tacked onto the end of this 2015 live set: a tense, cloistered original called "Tribal," where Jeff Beck spits out squalls of noise over thundering primal drums; and a cover of "My Tiled White Floor," a wash of electronic soul with vocals by Veronica Bellino that feels constructed out of faded memories of Prince. They're nice additions that wouldn't have quite suited 2010's Emotion & Commotion, nor do they quite feel of a piece with the rest of Live+, all recorded on tour in August 2014. Supported by a collection of tight pros – bassist Rhonda Smith, drummer Jonathan Joseph, guitarist Nicolas Meier, and vocalist Jimmy Hall…
Great news! Two guitar gods are coming to arena near you - if you live near the Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, that is. That's where Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck will perform on 21 and 22 February. To say that Clapton and Beck are two of the preeminent guitarists in the rock era is, of course, an understatement - between them, they have almost 100 years of musical experience. Together in the blues-tinged Yardbirds and in their solo careers, they have revolutionzed the electric guitar in ways that border on the seismic. Since leaving The Yardbirds, the duo have performed together at album sessions, benefit shows and festivals in years past, but these concerts mark the first time the pair have ever shared the bill for major arena shows.
