VIDEO: "Scatterbrain" by Jeff Beck with the Jan Hammer Group

Hi all,

Here's one of my favourites of the jazz fusion era. This is Jeff Beck Live with the Jan Hammer group from 1977. This is recorded and remixed in London, about 2 months after I saw the same great line-up in Adelaide, which is still (possibly) the best concert I've ever seen. For those Adelaideans out there - it was at Memorial Drive, a great live outdoor venue. The band line-up is below the video. Enjoy!

Jeff Beck - Guitars & special effects

The Jan Hammer Group comprising:

Tony Smith - Drums & lead vocal on "Full Moon Boogie"
Fernando Saunders - Bass, rhythm guitar on "She's A Woman" and vocal harmony
Steve Kindler - Violin, string synthesizer on "Darkness" and rhythm guitar on "Blue Wind"
Jan Hammer - Moog & Oberheim synthesizer; Freeman/Moog, string synthesizer, electric piano, timbales, and lead vocal on "Earth (Still Our Only Home)

The stereo spectrum of this album duplicates the stage set-up with guitar positioned center right, keyboards center left, violin right, & drums and bass center.
