Jeff Beck: Who Else!
In 1999, Jeff Beck entered the electronica age, releasing his first new original music in a decade, the outstanding Who Else!
I have stated on many occasions that Jeff is my favorite living guitarist, but I was still blown away at his seamless transition into a more techno styled music.
The electronic beats and ambient sounds were a perfect marriage for Beck’s endless melodic imagination and the otherworldly sounds he conjures from his guitars.
Some of my favorites from this album included Brush With The Blues, Angel (Footsteps), Psycho Sam, Space For The Papa, What Mama Said, Hip-Notica, and Another Place.
The overall production and level of musicians playing with the master all contributed to an incredible mashup of modern electonica and old school guitar heroics.
