Jeff Beck Live From The Grammy Museum Arrives 10/26


Earlier this year, Jeff Beck won his fifth Grammy Award, then scored the highest <em>Billboard</em> debut of his 45-year career with the release of <em>Emotion &amp; Commotion</em>, his first studio album in seven years. Riding that streak, Beck performed at the Grammy Museum April 22, thrilling an intimate crowd of 200 with his mind-bending guitar heroics.

Atco Records will release <em>Live and Exclusive From the Grammy Museum</em>.For the show, Beck took the stage with Grammy-winning producer and songwriter Narada Michael Walden on drums, bassist Rhonda Smith and keyboardist Jason Rebello. The quartet performed eight songs in all, tapping the new album for four, including covers of "Corpus Christi Carol," Nessun Dorma," and "Over The Rainbow" as well as the Beck-Rebello-penned "Hammerhead."

The remainder of the set featured the soulful "Brush With The Blues" from 1999’s Who Else!; a stunning take on The Beatles’ "A Day In The Life" (a version of which earned Beck his 2010 Grammy); and a supercharged version of "How High The Moon," a jazz standard popularized by Beck’s hero Les Paul. The show ended on a poignant note with Beck’s signature version of The Impressions’ classic "People Get Ready," a song the guitarist recorded in 1985 with Rod Stewart.

Beck spent much of 2010 on the road, headlining a U.S. tour then joining Eric Clapton for a series of performances. He also appeared at the New Orleans Jazz Festival and Bonnaroo before finishing his U.S. tour at Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival in Chicago.
