Every musician, regardless of what instrument you play or what style you like, owes a huge debt to Les Paul. Itís easy to remember him as the namesake for one of the most important guitars in the history of music. Itís somewhat less easy to remember him as the person who created the multi-track recorder. And unfortunately, not too many people of todayís younger generations know about Les Paul the guitarist. Every Monday night, Les took over the Iridium Jazz Club in New York City for a jam session, which usually includes any and all of the great names in music. You name the person, he was either on stage playing with Les or in the audience stealing secrets from him.
Les Paul Ė Live in New York is a concert collection of Lesí final live performances, filmed at the Iridium in honor of his 90th birthday. With special guest performances and interviews with the likes of Steve Miller, Tommy Emmanuel, Keith Richards, and Bonnie Raitt, one only has to imagine how great this program is.
