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!

Customer Reviews

Memorable music and very funny at times.
David
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.
Steve Ramm
The performances are very good, the audio and video both excellent.
Big Miles Davis Fan

Format: DVD
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!

Buy this disk for the performance, but be prepared to learn that this rascal is not the 1950's straight-laced character you may have assumed. Rate it PG. Ninety years old and arthritic, and he's full of life and still plays better than I can hope to. It will leave you wanting more and less - more Les Paul and less camera kitsch. The performance is 5* and the videography is 2*. The audio is competent and and free of gimmicks, but why does every musical performance have to look like an amateur music video these days? The incessant camera movement, sloppy focus and excessive, boring and ill-timed cut-aways (to cover botched shots?) are an annoying distraction when you are trying to watch a great performance. You don't look away or need "creative" camera angles to avoid boredom when Les Paul is playing! As a guitar player, I like the closeups, but even I know that an extra camera on a tripod left running with a broad shot is how you cover for the guys doing the tight shots. The legendary director John Ford had it right when he said that the actors should move - not the camera. The disk is filled up with plenty of extras for the nostalgia buffs, but I can't believe that they didn't record more of this or other sessions than a measly hour. This performance deserved a state-of-the-art production and an encore, but I guess all his fans would feel that way.

The BluRay disk appears to be a rush job. The pop-up menu for time and chapter number comes up blank on my Panasonic making it hard to find my favorite spots. There is no way to tell it to play through all the extras, so you have to cue up each one separately. This also is the first disk I've seen where the Dolby track is in two-channel stereo and the linear PCM track is the surround. This was unexpected and confusing at first; but I welcome lossless multi-channel sound in any format, and I think it should be mandatory for BluRay.

Les Paul live in NY is a wonderful tribute TO Les Paul. Many famous guitar heroes join him on stage, but this is a Les Paul nearing the end of his song, so his playing is minimal...in some case just a note or chord or two.. Which some might find sad. (even his jokes you have heaard before.)

If you love Les and just want anything that captures this amazing mans presence (as I do) you will enjoy Les at his passionate best.. If you are looking for a Les Paul that is going to burn thru riffs and lay out some melodic gems (as in the past)- this is not the dvd/cd for you. There are some wonderful performances from his guests....
