Rock And Roll Party To Honor Les Paul, Beck’s concert tribute to
the iconic guitarist recorded this summer at the Iridium Jazz Club in
New York City, to be released on DVD and CD from Eagle Rock
Entertainment and ATCO on February 22.
Beck to launch short U.S. tour this Spring with the Imelda May Band that takes the “Rock and Roll Party” on the road. PBS to premiere Jeff Beck Honors Les Paul later this month. Jeff Beck paid fitting tribute to Les Paul last summer, celebrating what would have been the pioneering guitarist’s 95th birthday by playing his friend and mentor’s music, along with classic tunes from the era, in the same Times Square nightclub that Paul played every Monday for 14 years before his death in August 2009. Sponsored by Gibson Guitar and billed as “A Celebration of Les Paul,” Beck was joined by the Imelda May Band at the Iridium Jazz Club in June 2010. The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee mesmerized the star-studded audience with a tour de force performance of classics Paul recorded with Mary Ford, “How High the Moon,” “Vaya Con Dios” and “Mockin’ Bird Hill,” along with such rock and roll standards as “Twenty Flight Rock” and “Walking in the Sand.” For those left off the guest list, Eagle Rock Entertainment and ATCO will offer this one of a kind performance to purchase. ROCK AND ROLL PARTY TO HONOR LES PAUL will be available on DVD and CD February 22. Following these releases, Beck will take the “Rock And Roll Party” on the road for a short U.S. tour. Beck will once again be backed by the Imelda May Band and its enchanting singer Imelda May, who joined Beck on stage at the 2010 Grammy Awards for a spot-on rendition of Paul’s “How High the Moon.” Further details about tickets will be announced in the coming weeks. Later this month, PBS will give fans a first look at a unique edition of this performance with the premiere Jeff Beck Honors Les Paul, a concert special that captures the first night of “The Celebration to Honor Les Paul,” which was recorded on June 9, 2010, what would have been Paul’s 95th birthday. Special guest performers included Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews, Gary U.S. Bonds and Brian Setzer who traded riffs with Beck on Eddie Cochran’s rockabilly classic “Twenty Flight Rock.” The program will premiere on PBS stations beginning November 27 and air throughout December.
