Jeff Beck

"Jeff"

The Story
Beck's name is synonymous with the electric guitar. Hard-edged and aggressive are two phrases that could be used to describe the instrumental music on "Jeff", his latest album during his almost four decades as an Epic recording artist. His name is tantamount to innovation, as the guitarist continues to experiment with modern, cutting-edge music - otherwise known as BeckTronica. Tracks such as "Hot Rod Honeymoon" offer up some muscular blues-rock, while "Porcupine" delves into Eastern stylings and tonalities. But the guitar is treated as an orchestral element in the mix here; rather than an up-front, dominant instrument - Beck tends to blend his axe into the surprising, groove-oriented, rhythmically driving tracks.
