Beck on Jools Holland

Discussion in 'Ask Justin Meldal-Johnsen' started by tightbidness, Oct 2, 2008.


  1. Hi Justin,

    Concert.tv is currently running a best of Beck from Later with Jools Holland. It's a blast watching you play and seeing what you bring to the Odelay and Midnite Vultures bands. Your presence elevates those performances. Great stuff.

    Best,
    Seth

    Damn, thanks man. Glory days for sure. Playing on Jools was a huge career highlight.

    I saw that as well! Very cool performance!

    Although I must say, you made some hair product company very, very happy. :p

    I got a chance to watch it today, and the mixes are way clearer than I expected they would be. Could you tell us what a Bassist/Music Director can expect when they walk on that soundstage and how the performance is tracked musically? Thanks!

    It's tracked just like a gig; standard mic complement on everything, they probably use ProTools, or something similar. I don't remember ever approaching Jools differently than a show, I guess. There's a bit more pressure and tension to have things come off more correct and tight, but it's minor...you kind of just get into the enjoyment of the circumstance.

    If you see a green hollowbody, it's a Coronado II, yes.

    Best,
    JMJ

    The hair thing must be a trade secret. ;)

    Love you just tossing the maracas upstage over your shoulder during Devil's Haircut! :D

    I don't see that stuff on their website...I presume it's on regular television?

    I couldn't find it on concert.tv either, but I did find a gnarly performance of Tropicala in Portugal. I would love to see your passport stamps with all artists and tours you work with!
    I saw "Beck - Best Of Later With Jools Holland" on-demand on comcast digital cable under music then concert tv.

    p.s. have you and Beck ever had a dance-off?

    I'd love to see some of the old SNL Beck performances too.
