A special commemorative edition of Les Paul's final performances

Available on DVD and BLU-RAY



The Final Performances of a Legend

  Few American musicians have had the impact and widespread  influence in as many distinctive areas as Les Paul.

  He was the Godfather of the electric guitar. Inventor of multi-track recording, overdubbing, reverb, and echo.  Music as we know it would literally not be possible without the recording processes he pioneered.

  As a guitarist and performer, he expanded the sonic and musical palettes of American popular song.  His virtuosic playing, and the mythical Gibson electric guitar that bears his name, inspired the legends of the rock & roll revolution.

  This live concert film is the final  portrait of  Les Paul as he was during the last three decades of his life:  a ribald and roasting-toasting performer and Manhattan jazz club institution.

  Every Monday night he staked his musical claim on the metropolis, often joined by the biggest names in show business.  These impromptu jam sessions became renown in music circles, and the tradition continued right up until August 2009, when the legendary guitarist left us.

  The performances captured here began on Les Paul's 90th birthday when luminaries from around the musical world gathered to celebrate at New York's historic Iridium Club. 

  The trademark elements of his sound - heavy reverb, crisp echo, trebly and twangy tone, bends, and glissandos - are on full display, as is his consummate showmanship, his sometimes-risqué  humor, and his insatiable appetite for fun and for surprise. 

  Les Paul Live In New York shows the reasons why Les had millions of fans the world over.  No one had more fun on his Monday night gigs than Les.
