Forgive me if this is old news, but I finally fell out from under my rock when I came home from work tonight and caught some of the 2007 Crossroads Guitar Festival on PBS HDTV. Two things stood way, way out to me.
I saw Steve Winwood playing guitar incredibly well in Chicago in the (sixties?) with Blind Faith. He hasn't lost a step and he blew Clapton off the stage with his talent. He was even more exciting than Derek Trucks.
And my man, Jeff Beck. Introducing me to...Tal Wilkenfeld. Have you seen/heard this woman? Never mind that she looks about fourteen. She is the most fun bass player to hear/watch since Jaco. Perhaps she plays too much, but Jeff was digging it too. That anyone her age could toe to toe in sync with the best living electric guitarist is amazing, but they were good together.

Is the sound any good on the DVD? I read it came out on the 20th of this month.
