Jeff Beck
With The Jan Hammer Group Live
The Story
Jeff Beck "With The Jan Hammer Group Live" featured live renditions of songs from Beck's two instrumental guitar releases, "Wired" and "Blow by Blow", along with a couple of vocal numbers "Earth (Still Our Only Home)" and "Full Moon Boogie". Beck livens up the proceedings with his typical fiery playing, while Hammer kicks out pseudo-guitar riffage from his battery of keyboards. The CD highlights include extended jams with keyboardist/synthesist Jan Hammer on "Freeway Jam" and "Blue Wind."
