Jeff Beck releases his new album ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Party’ on February 21st, paying tribute to the legendary Les Paul. The album features tracks taken from the show Beck performed in New York’s Iridium Jazz Club in New York, where Paul had played every Monday for 14 years until 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. Other guest performers joining Beck onstage included Brian Setzer, Gary “U.S.” Bonds, and Trombone Shorty.
“Les was my inspiration,” says Beck. “For years I had always wanted to do something for Les to show him how much I respected and admired what he had done. Les used to play every week at the Iridium Jazz Club in New York City, so for me it was the obvious and fitting place for a ‘Salute’ to him.”
