“Like it was for me with Jimi Hendrix, I came to Jeff Beck a little late. Once I got into the rock guys, though, I embraced them totally. Jeff Beck is unbelievable. Those trem bends he does? Wow, I just about fell over when I first heard them!
“This album is so cool. There’s a lot of creativity in the playing and the arrangements. I like that it’s jazzy and fusion-y. You can tell that Jeff is having a lot of fun – the feeling just jumps out. He plays raw and wild, but whenever he does something tender, it’s extremely heartfelt and soulful.
"He reminds me of Jerry Reed a little bit, the way he can do certain dips with a note in very unexpected ways. It can be minimal at times, just a nuance thing. He gets inside each sound and explores all that there is to it.”
