Jeff Beck paid fitting tribute to Les Paul last summer, celebrating what would have been the pioneering guitarist’s 95th birthday by playing his friend and mentor’s music, along with classic tunes from the era, in the same Times Square nightclub that Paul played every Monday for 14 years before his death in August 2009.

Sponsored by Gibson Guitar and billed as “A Celebration of Les Paul,” Beck was joined by The Imelda May Band at the Iridium Jazz Club in June 2010. The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee mesmerized the star-studded audience with a tour de force performance of classics Paul recorded with Mary Ford, “How High The Moon,” “Vaya Con Dios” and “Mockin’ Bird Hill,” along with such rock and roll standards as “Twenty Flight Rock” and “Walking In The Sand.”

For those left off the guest list, Eagle Rock Entertainment and ATCO will offer this one of a kind performance to purchase. Rock and Roll Party to Honor Les Paul will be available on DVD and CD February 22. A PBS special of the event, Jeff Beck Honors Les Paul, is set to premiere on November 27 and air throughout December. Check local listings for times.

Following these releases, Beck will take the “Rock And Roll Party” on the road for a short U.S. tour. Beck will once again be backed by The Imelda May Band and its enchanting singer Imelda May, who joined Beck on stage at the 2010 Grammy® Awards for a spot-on rendition of Paul’s “How High The Moon.” Further details about tickets will be announced in the coming weeks.

Now this is worth posting in Pastdream's "If you could do one show in NY other than the ABB or Dickey...

BTW the Iridium show will be broadcast on Channel 13 (in the NYC area) on December 2.

Thanks for this clip! Awesome!

When I saw Les Paul (a week after the 90th birthday celebration) at the Iridium, I noticed a guy at the back of the room (very small, cramped room!) video taping the show. He told me that he'd taped every Les Paul show (Monday nights) for eons. There must be a vault of videos of Les playing live at the Iridium! Like the mysterious and seemingly missing footage of the Allman Brothers at the Filmore - I wonder if we'll ever get a chance to see them.
