I realize some discs won't look as good as others but the motion blur and lack of clarity in the JB blu-ray is disconcerting , to say the least. I've read nothing but great reviews about this title, and so I wanted to hear from anyone here that has the disc and could report on their thoughts about the quality. Anyway, I consider myself a relatively knowledgeable person when it comes to video, but this just seems weird to me..I'd like to know if it's just me, or does anyone else see the "lack" of quality I'm seeing?
hmmm, this is very interesting, now I can't wait to watch this BD title.
I just purchased this new "Jeff Beck- Live At Ronnie Scott's" myself. I have owned the CD version for the last few months and have been very impressed with the overall "live" recording. Stunning if you ask me. After playing this CD the first time I could'nt put it down, I played it every day. Even my up-stairs neighbor asked me "who I was playing?".
The music is executed and captured very well in this appearance. Very clean and dynamic sound quality. The mix of compositions is wonderful, played by a group of some of the best musicians currently on the scene, including- Vinnie Colaiuta, drums (probably the best there is right now) and Tal Wilkenfeld, bass (hot young lady, has toured with Prince and many other hot musicians, she can lay it down)http://www.talwilkenfeld.com
Probably one of the best Jeff Beck performances I've heard.
So when I saw the BD release of this "live" performance I was totally excited and purchased it immediately. Will watch it this weekend and get back with my immpressions of video quality...........
