Jeff" Beck is a celebrated guitarist inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 4 April 2009. He is a
remarkable example of a fusion artist who explored many musical traditions and
played with a number of bands and notable musicians. He recorded
instrumental music with his own
innovations and improvisations
Rolling Stone ranked him fifth in their
list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time."
I chose to arrange and record Situation
from the 1971 album Rough and Ready. I treated this
piece as fusion rock and roll and it
challenged my ability to create a novel
version using the instrument combinations that I refer to as the P2500 Band. My
trumpet replace Jeff`s guitar, for example. Missing
is a brief vocal and Beck's guitar improvisations.
