For JEFF, legendary guitar god Jeff Beck reunited with Andy Wright, the producer for Beck's prior effort, 2001's YOU HAD IT COMING. In keeping with the creative theme of his last album, the Wallington native avoids being hidebound to the kind of classic-rock rut into which so many of his peers have fallen. Instead, he maintains his edge as an innovative string-bender by embracing new sounds and technological advances at the risk of alienating traditionalist fans. For this particular go-round, collaborators include experimental guitar/electronics cat David Torn of Splattercell fame, and Liverpudlian electronic trio Apollo 440.
Bashing rhythms provide the impetus for much of Beck's high-energy guitar work, with Apollo 440 doing the biggest degree of pushing on the crash-and-bang of "Grease Monkey" and equally intriguing "Hot Rod Honeymoon," both alluding to Beck's well-known love of muscle cars. The first song finds Beck's guitar screaming and singing over the cacophony of Chemical Brothers-sized beats while the latter tune features bluesy riffs, clattering rhythms, and occasional Beach Boys-like harmonies. The former Yardbird also shines on calmer fare including the ethereal "JB's Blues" and "Bulgaria," a majestic folk song featuring accompaniment by a 40-piece orchestra and some of Beck's most poignant playing.
