Jeff Beck @ Grand Rex, Paris May 27 2014

Jeff Beck @ Grand Rex, Paris May 27 2014

After the horrible concert by Prog band YES, we're back at the very beautiful Grand Rex theater. Less than a week ago JIMMY PAGE was at the Olympia theater for a Q&A. Tonight we spend the evening with another Yardbirds guitar player: Jeff Beck
At age 70, he's still very innovative and his guitar playing is faultless and with a virtuosity that even young guitar player can hardly achieve.
The set is only instrumental with only two songs with a vocalist "Why give it away" and the blues one "Rumblin and Tumblin" (see setlist for details)
 I'm not too familiar with his repertoire but Billy Cobham' s "Stratus", Hendrix' "Little Wing" and final song The Beatles' " A day in the Life" where fantastic ( see video below).
 JEFF BECK is incredible on guitar
Each musician had a short solo at one moment during the gig, needless to tell you musicianship was very high, Rhonda Smith on bass was amazing.
Great set
