Guitar hero Jeff Beck's latest offering, Jeff, is an extension of his increasing fascination with the latest technological advances his producers and mixers have to offer. Think of it as Beck-Tech. Indeed, Beck's backing band these days is a series of computer-generated rhythms, synth treatments and hand-picked, one-shot vocalists.
Fortunately, the entire conglomeration is driven by Beck's emotionally charged guitar virtuosity. The techno-style production takes a back seat to his signature guitar solos, which stand out like rays of sunshine amidst an insane thunderstorm.
Buy this CD for Beck's inimitable guitar prowess, and stay for the interesting contrast between techno-style production and the human element.
