Editorial Reviews

This Final Performance Tribute all began on Les Paul's 90th birthday when luminaries from the musical world gathered to celebrate at New York's historic Iridium Jazz Club. Les and friends 'jammed' every Monday for the next four years until the legend left us. Great moments from many of those cool sessions are presented in this tribute to the man who created a sonic boom with the solid-body electric guitar. It's all here. A tribute the way Les would have wanted it played. About the Collector's Edition: Les jams live with special guests like Keith Richards, Steve Miller, and Jose Feliciano. Musical luminaries Bonnie Raitt, Tony Bennett, Sonya Hensley and other share their thoughts on Les. Les plays 23 songs, including old favorites like 'Tennessee Waltz,' 'Route 66' and 'Back Home Again in Indiana'. 70 Minutes of 'bonus Features' including the original rendition of 'How High the Moon' with wife Mary Ford. Also includes audio tracks for download!

No LP fan should miss this video!

This DVD makes a great companion and has a lot more performance material, as well as Paul's sometimes-risque humor.

I think all guitar players love Les Paul.

Les Paul was a true renaissance man - a musician, an inventor, and a funny "rascal" too - during his 94 years, he made hit records, invented the solid body electric guitar and multi-track recording and spent every Monday night for 20 years playing on stage in the fairly intimate Iridium Jazz Club on Broadway in New York City. His audience on a Monday night consisted of tourists, longtime Paul fans and often a celebrity musician or two, who would often "sit in" with the master.

For Paul's 90th birthday month in 2005, some big names were scheduled to appear with Paul and the 54-minute show that forms the core of this DVD captures some of those moments. After a basic intro to Paul, the performances commence. Many of those in the first part of the show are interrupted with comments about him, which were recorded later, but soon the numbers are presented uninterrupted. Australian guitar wiz Tommy Emmanuel, Jose Feliciano, mandolinist David Grisman and Steve Miller are in the program. So are jazz violinist Christian Howes and tap dancer Andrew Nemr - who jam with Paul - but they are never identified until the final credits. I've had the pleasure of seeing Howes play with Paul when I had the opportunity to visit the Iridium, and I've seen the young Nemr do his fancy footwork as well. Keith Richards don's a Les Paul model guitar to trade licks too, but the performance was inserted from a 2002 Richards visit to the Iridium.

Though the package lists "Tributes and Live Performances" by Bonnie Raitt and Tony Bennett, you see them in the same room with Paul. They appear in 4-minute interviews as part of the additional hour of "bonuses". Emmanuel and guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli are there for similar interviews.

For anyone that ever had the privaledge of seeing Les Live at the Iridium, this is a great representation of that.
If you never had the chance to go, but always wanted to, this is as close and realistic as it gets.

Les was an amazing showman, The band just Smokes! and the humor between songs is awesome.

Great Disk. Highly recommended..

You cant beat it. I also recommend Les Paul: Chasing Sound, and Jeff Beck: Live at Ronnie Scotts.

Enjoy!

This gives a nice history of Les Paul and his development of the electric guitar. The old stuff is good to know.

This is one of the most enjoyable DVDs I've seen. Les Paul, at 90, seems to be having the time of his life playing with long-time friends. Very well done.

This was a gift for someone who plays guitar and has played in New York at the Iridium. I think all guitar players love Les Paul. He was really something else.
