Freeway Jam To Beck and Back Review
by Gary Schwind
This all-star tribute to one of the guitar greats features a formidable lineup with the likes of: Steve Morse ("Freeway Jam"), Eric Johnson ("Beck's Bolero"), Warren Haynes ("The Pump"), and Walter Trout (Brush with the Blues"). A different guitarist is featured on each track and each one does a pretty good job of interpreting Beck's nearly inimitable style.
With such a great lineup performing the songs of Jeff Beck, it's almost superfluous to search for favorites. However, I really enjoy John Scofield's version of the funky "Over Under Sideways Down." Jeff Richman's version of "El Becko" is pretty great too.
This is the kind of album that makes my job as a reviewer real easy. I mean, what else can I possibly say about this album? It's the music of Jeff Beck by ten different guitar greats. It is a worthy tribute to a classic musician and I'm sure fans of Jeff Beck and fans of great guitar will enjoy this equally.
