Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
A year after Les Paul's death, Jeff Beck saluted the guitar pioneer by staging a rousing tribute show to the great man at Paul's regular stomping ground, the Iridium Jazz Club. Backed by his current running mates the Imelda May Band, Beck enlisted some heavy-hitters for help -- Brian Setzer comes in for the rock & roll, Trombone Shorty for the jazz, Gary U.S. Bonds sings some oldies -- all the better to get the party started.

    this album is great!!

    this is the liveliest, most fun album i've heard in years. everything about it is superb..and the les paul/mary ford covers sound so similar to the originals, it's eerie.
    buy it. you won't be sorry.
