Les Paul has been a long-time inspiration for Jeff Beck, and last summer, Beck paid tribute to the legendary guitarist on what would have been Paul's 95th birthday.
Beck's two performances at New York's Iridium Jazz Club, where Paul performed for fourteen years until his death of August 2009, will be released on CD and DVD as Rock 'n' Roll Party (Honoring Les Paul) on February 22.
