Jeff Beck Performing This Week: Live at Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club - A DVD Review

Back last year I was lucky enough to be able to review the latest live offering from one of my most favorite guitarists: Jeff Beck. The album, Performing This Week Live at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club really caused a stir as a pretty incredible listen, a great showcase of the talents of Beck and his latest band, and a great addition to the Jeff Beck catalog, which has been somewhat lacking in live recordings.

Rock and Roll Feature: Beck's Modern Guilt

This is the twenty-sixth in a series of Rock & Roll features I'm writing for this site. I'm a rock and roller, so this column is a way for me to feature a different album that I like, from different genres every month.

Still Carrying on the Torch of the Greats with Firebug: An Album Review

Being musically obsessed (the term I like to use to describe my love of rock and roll) can be a very time consuming process. Don't get me wrong, it's a labor of love, but it takes a lot of time to continually be seeking out new music from today and yesteryear. Plus then I just have to spend a good bit of time with my ears locked in my headphones absorbing all the sonic goodness as well (and I have a "day job" or two to take care of as well).

Rock and Roll Feature: A Ghost is Born from Wilco

This is the twenty-fourth in a series of Rock & Roll features I'm writing for this site. I'm a rock and roller, so this column is a way for me to feature a different album that I like, from different genres every month.

Well last month's feature was a classic album, from the original metal founders straight out of Britain, Black Sabbath. And so for the feature this month... something completely different!

Jeff Beck Performing This Week: Live at Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club - A CD Review

When it comes to guitar legends, few can measure up to Jeff Beck. Going all the way back to his days with the Yardbirds, Beck has continually infused new life into electric guitar, pushing the boundaries into jazz fusion and forging his own unique technique and style. I've been a fan of Jeff Beck pretty much from the first time I heard him play. He has a way of touching a note and sculpting it in a way that is completely unexpected and can take a simple phrase and wrench more emotion out of it than just about any player I've ever seen.

The Dividing of the Pumpkins Fans, Part 3: A DVD Review

This is part 3 of a 4 part piece I am writing, inspired by a pair of Smashing Pumpkins concerts and a DVD documentary. As you may or may not know, I am a big Smashing Pumpkins fan, I always appreciate their work. I feel the need to preface this piece by saying that as it will give you an insight into the context of my commentary.

It's been something of a Smashing Pumpkins month for me. In addition to back to back concert events, I also picked up a copy of the band's most recent DVD release: If All Goes Wrong.
