Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Jeff Beck (guitar); Mark John (acoustic guitar); Jennifer Batten (electric & midi guitars); Bob Loveday (violin); Clive Bell (flute); Jan Hammer (keyboards, drums); Tony Hymas (keyboards); Simon Wallace (synthesizer); Randy Hope-Taylor, Pino Palladino (bass); Manu Katche (drums, percussion); Steve Alexander (drums).
  • "What Mama Said" was nominated for the 2000 Grammy Award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance.
  • Jeff Beck's first all-instrumental album in a decade finds him tossing a few contemporary peppers into his pot of musical virtuosity. Reuniting once again with GUITAR SHOP keyboardist Tony Hymas, Beck maintains a balance between contemporary, Art Of Noise-flavored tracks ("Space For The Papa," "TX138") complete with delays, techno beats and looped guitars, and a reunion with '70s fusion running buddy Jan Hammer on the heavier, Van Halen-esque "Even Odds." Beck's musical range continues to impress as he easily moves between emotive blues phrasing ("Brush With The Blues"), fleet-fingered noodling ("Blast From The East") and more ethereal numbers that bring to mind Carlos Santana's solo work ("Hip-Notica.")
  • Beck's talent truly shines when he tackles Donal Lunny's "Declan." On it, guitar histrionics give way to Celtic arrangements that find Beck's guitar delicately dancing with Clive Bell's flute as images of foggy moors and rolling green hills float along. The brief solo piece "Another Place" could have been be an Adrian Legg outtake.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (4/1/99, p.100) - 3 1/2 Stars (out of 5) - "...the chrome-funk and ice-ballad instrumentals on WHO ELSE are all cut from the familiar wailing fusion cloth of Beck's mid-Seventies beauties....WHO ELSE is a feast of tone color and riff musculature..."

Entertainment Weekly (3/19/99, p.106) - "The techno-rhythm tracks and spacey melodies that threaten to engulf this still-adventurous gutiar hero's work may be dated and just this side of dumb, but few '60s-era ax-men have as much fun extracting outlandish sounds from their instruments as the original Beck..." - Rating: B
