Remembering Joe Beck

Oral History Information


This video vignette was created to serve as a tribute to Jazz guitarist Joe Beck (1945-2008). Joe was helpful in the early days of the NAMM Oral History Program but due to his health was never interviewed. To show our appreciation for his role in helping us, we asked his friend Jimmy Bruno for his thoughts about Joe and added footage of Joe performing during the NAMM Show in Anaheim. During that 2001 performance, Joe was joined on stage by fellow guitarist Larry Coryell and saxophonist Steve Marcus. We miss you Joe.
