Beck's whole show has been downloaded over on YouTube (who knows how long...) I guess I just don't get it. She plays some nice fills on "Angel (Footsteps)" but she waffles the beat a few times, she's got a quick unison part on "Big Block" between 4:18 and 4:30 but on that song and "Led Boots" the bass should drive
, man.... Rock bass is about time, and she's not locked with Vinnie. She seems nervous, tentative & consequently overplays - though obviously she'll get better quick if she can keep getting such great gigs after
the novelty effect wears off. I love Beck's playing to death, but he doesn't keep a touring band together
long enough anymore for the entire unit to acquire that supernatural glow - the same thing happens with McLaughlin and the intermittent Dregs reunions.
(I hope I can catch the Corea/McLaughlin band towards the end
of their tour though, and the summer Return to Forever tour might be smokin'
, now that Al DiMeola's personality has mellowed somewhat... :redflag
