Eagle Rock Entertainment is proud to announce the simultaneous release of Jeff Beck: Rock ‘N’ Roll Party Honoring Les Paul on DVD and Blu-ray on February 22, 2011. Filmed in high definition at the Iridium Jazz Club in New York City this past spring, this musical celebration of the great Les Paul features selections of his songs and other great rock ‘n’ roll tracks. Additionally, ATCO will be offering a CD of this exclusive show, featuring 20 live tracks from the evening, on the same day.
On June 9, 2010, which would have been Les Paul’s 95th birthday, Jeff Beck and a host of special guests paid homage to the musical icon at the very club where he performed every Monday night. Rockabilly songstress Imelda May and her band, led by Darrel Higham, as well as Gary US Bonds, Brian Setzer and Trombone Shorty, join Beck on many of the tracks. This collection of talent, performing in the clubs intimate setting, truly captures the spirit of Les Paul’s weekly gigs, and the DVD puts the viewer right there in the audience for a showcase of stunning musicianship and truly great songs. Spotted in the audience at this spectacular event is an amalgam of stars, such as David Bowie, Meat Loaf, Steven Van Zandt, Paul Shaffer, Kirk Hammett, and Nils Lofgren.
Rock ‘N’ Roll Party Honoring Les Paul includes the classics “Bye Bye Blues,” “Sitting On Top Of The World,” “Mockin’ Bird Hill,” “Peter Gunn,” “How High The Moon,” “New Orleans,” “Walking In The Sand,” and many more! In addition to the music, the DVD contains a host of bonus features: An interview with Jeff Beck; Behind The Scenes; “At home with Jeff Beck & his guitars”; “Jeff Beck & Les Paul – Rock ‘n’ Roll Tonite” and “Les Paul & his little black box.”
A five-time Grammy-Award winner, with five more nominations under his belt for 2011, Jeff Beck will take this party on the road with Imelda May and her band for a spring tour. Dates are below.
Following the hugely successful release of Jeff Beck’s Performing This Week…Live at Ronnie Scotts DVD/Blu-ray in 2009, this DVD is not to be missed by fans of either of these true guitar icons.
