Product Description
Jeff Beck is undeniably one of the world's greatest guitar players. Technically brilliant, he is renowned for pushing musical boundaries and has excelled across many different genres from rock and jazz to pop and blues. Live In Tokyo was filmed at the Tokyo Dome City Hall in Japan on April 9th, 2014. These Japanese dates were the first to feature Jeff Beck's new backing band of Jonathan Joseph (drums), Nicolas Meier (guitars)and Rhonda Smith(bass) and the set list includes some material from his new, as yet unreleased, studio album. In contrast to Beck's previous visual releases, both filmed in small clubs, Live In Tokyo is filmed in a major concert arena and has a very different, more expansive feel. Jeff Beck is a true guitar legend and this show captures him at his very best.

    5Great band, Jeff
    By Walter Sobchak
    Wow. I was expecting greatness from this and it delivers in spades! 90 minutes of rock, jazz, blues, funk, techno, electronica and ballads. Great band, Jeff, Rhonda Smith, Nicholas Meier and Jonathon Joseph. Beck is seemingly even more incredible than on the 'Live at Ronnie Scotts' Blu-ray. Video quality is very good considering the darkened concert stage Closeups on the performers and their instruments look beautiful on my plasma. Also, this video is not a complete 16x9 (1.78:1) aspect ratio. It has black bars above and below the image, I would say more like 2:20:1 aspect . I love it in that the stage is big and the aspect ratio used allows for some wonderful compositioned shots. It's also full 1080p. Well done. The 5.1 lossless DTS-MA track here is amazing! One of the best I've heard. Great dynamics and with a higher end set-up, you will be rewarded. Aces! There's also a 2.0 PCM stereo track which I'm guessing is equally as good. At the current price, order this if you're a fan (even if you're not). Thank you Jeff...

    5Staggeringly Prolific Performance
    By Gusano Verde
    A staggeringly prolific performance, and the most beautifully filmed concert I have ever played. It's a rock show, it's a symphony, it's an opera... it's wonderful. When I saw this version of the group live last summer, I was a little worried about the absence of keyboardist Jason Rebello, and while I do hope to see him back in the fold, I was very impressed at Nicholas Meier's ability to play the keyboard parts on his guitar-synth, and also take fabulous guitar solos on his composition Yemeni and on other tunes. His rhythm guitar added some new dimension to JB standards like A Day in the Life and also on the super-creative and poignant cover of Little Wing. Jonathan Joseph is superb on drums, and while I think his comparisons to Cobham may be a little premature, he is powerful, articulate, delightful. My only complaint is that I feel his drum solo on Stratus isn't mastered up high enough on the recording; or maybe it's just my system. Rhonda Smith is smokin' hot... I can't get enough of her. What a masterful player. As for Jeff, he is a great gift for all of us that have been so malnourished on the jazz-fusion diet in recent years. I love the cover of You Know You Know. He would never try to show up McLaughlin, but if you go and listen to The Boston Record, you can see that he does anyway. One suggestion for him: I love Brush With the Blues, but we can also handle the full version of Goodbye Pork Pie Hat. Nobody does it better! So... buy the Blu Ray, and if you have a chance to see JB and this great group, DO IT!

    5... a day and now look what I can do" super shredder guitarists in the world
    By R Niles
    Certainly there are legions of incredibly virtuosic "I practice for 14 hours a day and now look what I can do" super shredder guitarists in the world. A lot of them blow all of us away(my personal fave is Buckethead). But, when it comes to the whole picture, I mean the WHOLE picture; Jeff Beck is definitely "da man." Who else has the already secure place in history, that he continues to impressively add to, as he moves in to the sixth decade of his career. This DVD is evidence to all that. Sure there has been some quibbling about the aspect ratio and the black bars at the top and bottom and blah, blah. C'mon, who really cares. Jeff and his superlative band absolutely smoke! His playing is the usual masterful mix of emotion, melody, aggression and mind boggling technique. His sound is totally unique. The set list is well chosen and visually I kind of like the widely composed, arena stage shots. Don't worry there are plenty of close ups. Beck lifers and newbies alike, buy and enjoy!
